Lake District - A Dog Walker's Guide

Lake District - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Peter Naldrett
There's nowhere in the country that compares with the exceptional scenery of the Lake District. With this book, dogs and their owners can enjoy walking across this dramatic landscape with 20 stimulating circular walks chosen and researched specifically for dog walkers. The routes are mainly off-road, avoiding stiles and grazing livestock wherever possible and warning you in advance where you will need to put your dog on a lead.

The walks range from 1 mile to an invigorating 8 miles and offer plenty of opportunities to explore the Lake District's soaring fells, stunning waterside paths, picturesque valleys and forests packed with scent and adventure.

There are wonderful lakeside walks by Ullswater, Elterwater and Rydal Water as well as scenic woodland walks in Whinlatter and Grizedale Forests, with many trails and sculptures to discover. You'll also be climbing one of Wainwright's legendary peaks at Dodd Fell.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers. There are also many colour photographs.
