Threlkeld Ale Trail


53 km / 33 miles
This is one of a series of six 'Ale Trails' from the Jennings Brewery. The route of 33 miles starts and finishes at the Horse and Farrier Inn in Threlkeld. The route initially heads for the remote Skiddaw House, from where it ascends Skiddaw. After descending to Portinscale it traverses the tops of Catbells, Maiden Moor and High Spy before dropping down into Borrowdale. A visit to the Lodore Falls is followed by a traverse of the relatively quiet Armboth fells, with a visit to Castlerigg Stone Circle on the way back to Threlkeld.
