Grizedale Forest to Tarn Hows

tarn hows

This stunning wooded trail takes in some of the best scenery in the Lake District. You will achieve views of lakes, forests, streams and mountain peaks during your run. The terrain varies from wide vehicle paths to narrow forest tracks, but all paths are well defined and clear on the ground.

This is a crowded area, so to get the best out of this trail, try running it in early morning or evening. Quiet times of year are also magical - a crisp winter morning with clear skies would be ideal.

There are toilet facilities and car parks at both Tarn Hows and the Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre.
