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. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers.
