10.9 miles, 1-3 hours
This is a nice route for those who like to go off road with an equal split of on/off road sections.
The circular route starts at the Windermere Ferry, goes through Near and Far Sawrey to Hawshead. From there, it climbs via a fairly steep bridleway to the mountain bike tracks through the Grizdale Forrest.
Some of the off road sections can be challenging but this is a very scenic route and the challenge is well rewarded by the stunning views.
