This is a fairly easy route by Lake District standards and yet still manages to give you a true feeling of remoteness in parts. It has one particularly technical section around the flank of Lonscale Fell, with a tasty looking drop off one side.

This route is OK for beginners, although you may be pushing around the Lonscale Fell area, but it's also a good route if you're more advanced but are looking for a shorter ride, as it squeezes some great terrain into a relatively short distance.

The route itself begins in Keswick, and starts off on the old railway route to Threlkeld. It then climbs onto the flanks of Blease Fell and follows the contours before crossing Glenderaterra Beck and returns to Keswick via the Alps-like track around Lonscale Fell.
