Details

This is an ideal mountain bike route if you have limited time. It begins by following the Old Railway Line but then climbs out of Threlkeld into the Glenderaterra Valley for beautiful views over St Johns in the Vale. Old mine workings can be seen below as the ride heads up into the valley, then crosses a beck before contouring high above on Lonscale Fell. The scenery is very dramatic, with only a few sheep for company, and the descent from Latrigg to Keswick will leave you wanting more.
