A long cycle trail taking in much of the forest on the western side of the valley and overlooking Coniston Water. Fantastic views of the heart of the Lake District, looking across Coniston to the Langdales.

Start from the Visitor Centre car park and follow the green waymarkers.

Good route, plenty of up & downs. My wife & sister in law who are both occasional cyclists found it challanging but managed it OK Waymarks missing at 2 junctions

For a novice biker this route was pretty demanding but despite having to push up some of the hilly bits the trail was excellent, views outstanding and the sense of achievement at the finish huge.

Lovely views. Great hire bikes. However there are plenty of steep climbs made even more difficult whilst towing my nephew in a trailer. Well worth it!
