Rating: Easy/Moderate – a small circular walk with a bit of a steep incline to begin with.

Miles: 5 miles approx.

Route Description:

From Sour Howes and Sallows, there are really good views back over Windermere lake and towards Wansfell Pike and Kentmere Horseshoe (on a nice day that is!).

From the car park we cross the bridge and briefly head back along the main road, then turn left up a track through some houses. The path then turns left and gradually inclines for a mile. We cross a stile and the path steeply inclines to Sour Howes (483m). From Sour Howes, the path is undulating towards Sallows (516m) and we cross another stile. The return path is down Garburn Pass and we head back to the car park.
