A linear, multi-day mountain (above 600m) walk in national park Lake District (England) starting at Eskdale, Cumbria, about 42km (roughly 26 miles) long and unsuitable for families with children, prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.
A three-day Lake District walk covering a wide area. This walk takes approximately three days, using two National Trust campsites (open all year round). The first and last day are short walks, with a slightly longer day in the middle.
Start by catching a train to Ravensglass (unless you live in Ravenglass of course), then take the Ravenglass-Eskdale railway to the start of the walk. On the last day catch a bus back to Windermere for train connections.

The path here can be hard to find so watch out for a stile at the top of the field and head towards it. Once through the field, head straight up the slope following a rough path. Keep to this path heading up towards Sca Fell summit.
To rate the walk, simply move your mouse over the stars to the left and click when it indicates how you like the walk.
The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
