Short walks in Allerdale

Walking is a great form of physical activity which can enable you to improve your health and fitness, and with some of the most breath-taking scenery in the country, with the Lake District in the south and the coastline stretching to the north, this is an ideal place to get out and about and stay healthy.

Just a 10 minute brisk walk each day can significantly improve your health and positively contributes to the prevention and management of over 20 chronic diseases. To help make it as easy as possible for people to get fit and healthy through walking, we’ve recommended some specially designed local ‘doorstep walks’. These are simple walking routes across the borough that vary in length and difficulty depending on your health and fitness levels, so they are easily accessible to everyone.
