Glenridding - Lantrys Tarn - Patterdale - Silver Crag - Glenridding
The walk starts in the little hamlet of Glenridding, which is really popular with tourists and has plenty of parking. It follows the beck towards the lead mine for a time before taking a turn up the hill to Lanty's Tarn.
On the route up, looking back, great views of the lake and surrounding hills can be taken in. Lanty's Tarn is a lovely setting for a picnic. As the walk proceeds, the descent offers fantastic views of the fells and walkers can be seen on their way up to Helvellyn from Patterdale.
The walk continues to Patterdale over lowland fellside, offering the opportunity to take a detour up to Black Crag or further along, to Boredale Hause. It carries on to Silver Crag, offering a lovely extended view of the lake and excellent photo opportunities. A short detour from the path will take you to Silver Point below Silver Crag, a lower point on the walk but offering wonderful views up and down the Ullswater lake.
There are various pubs en route and a lovely tea room at Side Farm towards the end of the walk. At the end it is possible to walk from the car park at Glenridding and take a steamboat ride along Ullswater; this round trip takes around one hour, thirty minutes.
