Lake Windermere often suffers from being too popular. However there are many excellent walks near the lake which are overlooked by many so it is still possible to enjoy the area without having to suffer the crowds. This Lake District walk includes some forest and also offers stunning views from the southernmost viewpoint of Gummer's How. After taking the A592 Windermere road from Newby Bridge, turn right up a steep road signed Fell Foot Park where there is a large free car park on the right marked Gummers How (Grid ref. SD389876).
