Walk 2511

Silverdale & Arnside

County/Area - Lancashire

Author - Mike Bexley

Length - 8.0 miles / 13 km

Ascent - 1300 feet / 394 metres

Grade - easy/mod

This Cumbrian walk explores the often neglected Arnside area on the east side of Morecambe Bay. Often people by-pass this beautiful area as they head north to the Lake District National Park. However this route offers a pleasant excursion through mature woodlands and undulating country with views of the Lake District fells as an added bonus.
