Haverthwaite to Lakeside Railway

Greenwood Trail 2

Greenwood Trail 2: Haverthwaite Heights and Abbots Reading Visit the project page to find out more about the trail and to download the leaflet.

This walk, round Haverthwaite Heights, follows woodland paths, fields and a small amount of road. The paths are quite rough in places and often muddy (appropriate footwear recommended). The walk involves a few steep sections which gain the best viewpoints. There are 2 routes:

  • Short (path through woodland) 3.5km 2 miles 1-1.5hrs
  • Long (including Abbots Reading Farm) 4.8km 3 miles 1.5-2hrs

A choice of routes from Lane Ends, the Old Road,  Haverthwaite Railway Station, Whitewater Hotel, Linsty Green or Abbots Reading Farm.  Parking is available at Lane Ends.
