Grisedale & Glenridding Valleys (from Ullswater)

HH Ullswater valleys pic

Enjoy the hidden valleys to the west Ullswater. Grisedale Valley is famously where Wordsworth said his last 'Good Bye's' to his brother in 1800, and Glenridding famously home to the Greenside Lead Mines where they found silver.

WALK DETAILS: 14km and 700m ascent.

The ascent is over the course of the day, and although a relatively valley walk, it is deceptive how much up and down there is! This walk can be tailored on the day to suit you. Approx 5-6 hours walking time.
