A great low-level ride for all conditions, with refreshments and bail-out options. Good for intermediate riders, though still tough physically. Makes a good wet/winter route.

Distance: 27.8km (17.3 miles)

Go left out of the car park, then take the first road on the left (Stoney Lane). Join the path at the end and cross the footbridge. Turn right and then immediately left, on a steep bridleway, uphill. Past Brow Head Farm, keep ahead on a rocky bridleway, uphill. Then go down to a fork at Ivy Crag.

Bear right on some singletrack, downhill to a track. Keep ahead to a road. Go right, then immediately left. Keep right on the road to the crossroads with the A593. Go ahead on this, over Skelworth Bridge, then bear off to the left on a minor road. Keep left at the fork by a (raised) house. Go right at the next fork, signposted to Hawkshead.

Keep left at the next junction, then go right on Bog Lane for 0.7km. When it turns left, keep ahead on a bridleway. Look out for a permissive bridleway bearing off up to the right after 0.8km and follow it into Iron Keld Plantation. Keep right at the T-junction, go through a gate and join a bridleway that heads right, out into the open.

Follow this great descent all the way to the main road. Turn left on the road and follow it back uphill. Turn right on a road at the top, then shortly afterwards turn right on a permissive bridleway back downhill. Turn left on the gravel track at the bottom. Follow this to a road and go right on it.

Keep to the left, following a byway uphill to Hodge Close. Go right on a track opposite the last cottage, through a gate. Go right (north) at the fork just past Pierce How Beck, to a track crossing. Keep ahead, over a bridge, to Little Langdale.

Turn left on the road, then shortly afterwards right. Follow this track past Dale End Farm, downhill. Go through a gate, then left on a bridleway, uphill. Drop downhill, go over a track (right then left) and through the quarry, following the signposts. Cross the bridge and turn left on the road. Shortly afterwards turn right and keep right, uphill.

Follow this road for quite a way. After passing the youth hostel go left at the T-junction, then right on the bridleway – which is popular with walkers. At the far end by the trees turn right (beware of the drop-off, if taking the first track).

Pass the caves and descend to and go right on a quiet road. When you reach the footbridge you crossed at the start, go left back to Ambleside.
