Great Lakes Connection

Cumbria

80 km / 50 miles
The Great Lakes Connection is a mainly low-level route which passes through the heart of Lakeland along the valleys of the two largest lakes. It will appeal to everybody's capabilities from the seasoned hiker who may wish to complete the walk in a few days to those who could use the way as a basis for a longer more leisurely holiday. This is a long distance with a difference. The way is supported by a variety of facilities catering for all needs from refreshments to accommodation. It is also served by an excellent public transport network and the lakes themselves offer the opportunity to sail their length in some of the oldest passenger vessels in the world.
