Aira Force and Gowbarrow Fell

After the noise and bustle of visitors to Aira Force, the quiet path to Gowbarrow Fell alongside the river is perhaps a welcome contrast.

It is worth making the effort to visit both Gowbarrow and Green Hill for the views down to Ullswater and to the surrounding hills.

Parking is at the National Trust car park at the bottom of the falls, or alternatively there is a parking area on the Dockray road.
