Walking Routes in and around Keswick

Choose your Walk .....The lakes and mountains surrounding Keswick the Lake District are one of the best places in the UK for hiking and walking .. whether you want to climb the highest peaks, seek out the best views, walk along the lakeshore, explore the forests and woodland or take in hidden valleys we have it all. Various walks such as Skiddaw, Latrigg, Walla Crag, Castlehead, Castlerigg Stone Circle and the walk round Derwentwater can be started from Keswick town centre. Using the local buses and the Keswick Launch gives you the opportunity to explore the whole area without needing to take your car.
