Ullswater Bridlweway Easy Walk from Patterdale

An easy Lake District ramble from Patterdale along part of the Ullswater Way. This section is only a few kilometres in length and takes you from Patterdale along the lakeside, past Blowick Bay and around Silver Crag. The route then returns on a slightly higher level back to Patterdale.

Those looking for a longer walk could walk the entire Ullswater Way, or perhaps only the section from Patterdale to Howtown. This section along Ullswater is only around 10km in length and you can return to the start by catching the Ullswater Steamers that travel between Pooley Bridge, Howtown, Glenridding, and Aira Force.
