Haverthwaite to Lakeside Railway

Greenwood Trail 2

Greenwood Trail 2: Haverthwaite Heights and Abbots Reading

This walk, round Haverthwaite Heights, follows woodland paths, ? elds 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
Bark-peeler's hut

So far so good...

  • This is the second Greenwood Trail, to be launched in May 2018. Download the leaflet shortly
  • An old bark-peeler's hut has been restored along the route.
  • Overgrown paths have been cleared in Haverthwaite Heights.
