This is a circular walk taking in Gowbarrow fell and the stunning Aira Force waterfall. Starting from the National Trust shop we will walk towards the water fall but once across the river we will bear right on to the path up towards Yew Crag. Briefly stopping at Yew Crag to admire the views across Ullswater we will then continue to the old shooting lodge and then on to the summit of Gowbarrow Fell. From the summit we head towards Dockray then pick the path up for the higher falls of Aira Force and then down to the main water fall its self.

Parking is in the National Trust car park (charges apply)
