The walk takes you along the valley edge on a good track. The valley is shaped by Naddle Fell on one side and the Great Dodd range on the far side. The vale opens out for excellent views of Blencathra. After a short, quite steep ascent to Rake How, the going is easy across an open grassy fell. Looking north, there are views of Blencathra, Skiddaw, Grisedale Pike, Causey Pike and Bassenthwaite Lake. Looking south, Helvellyn can just be seen over Whiteside and Low Man. Thirlemere, Great How and Raven Crag are clearly seen. This is an easy walk to follow.

Oops didn't read the reviews and spent ages looking for the national trust car park! It s now a national utilities car park. It was free today though as since the floods some of the area has been closed off but not how long this will be the case though. Nice walk though

I confirm the last comment about the car park. You can park for free on the main road where mentioned in the middle of waymark 1 (and see map) - lots of cars parked on the grass verge. At Waymark 2, we could see no sign of the 'inviting' right hand path, so for a while were concerned that we were on the wrong path as the correct one does descend to the river. Basically, in summer, the obvious path is the correct one. From waymark 7-9, we didn't find the exact path that Gary describes, but as long as you keep heading uphill and find the cairn, you will end up in the right place. Lovely walk, thank you.

May 2012 - thoroughly enjoyed this walk. Lots of variety and great views, no navigation problems. Note - the suggested car park is no longer National Trust, but a quite expensive pay and display - take plenty of pound coins!

We walked this from Stybeck farm where we were camping, a lovely walk with clear instructions, although we detoured slightly on the 2nd half, we followed a path higher on the hillside rather than by the river. The tea rooms were very rustic but lovely and we too recommend!
