Walking Route

Caldbeck

Caldbeck

Details

This stage is through Cumbrian countryside rarely seen by visitors and looks deceptively easy compared to other more upland stages. In between the picturesque village of Caldbeck, Dalston and the bustling city of Carlisle is a generous helping of old bridges, stiles and gates. The trail keeps largely to woodland and farmland paths and tracks alongside the winding course of the River Caldew.
