Lakes Tick List

We get to visit Britain’s favourite National Park … the Lake District, at least once a year. So, whilst there over the forthcoming seasons, it is hoped that we can ‘bag’ all the highest mountains (by boot) and circumnavigate all the largest lakes (by peddle). I have climbed all the mountains before (in a younger life!), but am keen to make a detailed account (map, stats, information etc) of our forthcoming endeavours.
We might extend this in the future to include kayaking the lakes(?) … VA

So, what’s next(???) …

  • Derwent Water Round
  • Ullswater Round
  • Historical Town Walks
  • More Mountains (11 to 20)
~
Circumnavigating the lakes are not exactly a new idea (“KMF 3 Peaks Challenge” / “Ullswater Way”), but I will break them down into manageable segments and utilise the excellent bus and ferry services to get to the start / finish points).
