A magnificant walk with very rewarding reviews. You can walk from Ambleside centre and you can exit near the Lake and if you time the ferry, you can then travel to Windermere. A great day out.

We enjoyed a circular walk from Waterhead taking in Jenkin Crag and Stockghyll Waterfalls. Well worth the effort! The views of the lake from the top are beautiful

Just with couple steps, you can enjoy better view. On the way to Jenkin Crag, there are lots of tall and unique trees. It's a big joy passing through the forest and then go to the top.

Although this is a great view (most in the Lake District are) there are better views just 100-200m further up the path! There are lots of rocks to sit on though, so it's a good place to stop for a rest!

There are no bad views in the Lake District. No bad walks or drives either. Even cloudy, drizzling days are great

Just below Ambleside (south) Lowfold Car Park, there are some free spaces at the back, there is a signpost off Old Lake Rd for Wansfell, Jenkin's Crag.
