Route Description for Staveley to Windermere Walk
Walking the Staveley to Windermere Trail is a fantastic activity that is popular with casual walkers thanks to the relatively easy terrain and scenic landscape. This is a one-way walk, so you will need to either retrace your footsteps after arriving in Windermere or take the train back. Setting out from the trailhead in Staveley, make your way to the southwest to traverse the open farmland, climbing gently uphill to eventually arrive at the edge of several small fells known as Grandsire and School Knott. From here, you will pass by the quiet shores of School Knott Tarn and cross the summit of the fell with the same name, continuing on towards the northwest until you arrive in Windermere. At this point, you will need to either walk the length of the trail or take the train back to the trailhead in Staveley.
