This route can be completed as the first leg of the C2C crossing from Whitehaven to Sunderland/Newcastle. Highlights on this journey are Whinlatter Forest, the stunning scenery of the Lake District and the spectacular Cumbrian mountains - including Blencathra below. Particularly eye catching are the beautiful Lowes and Crummock water as well the popular and stunning Derwent Water (below). There is also a lovely off road stretch along the River Greta just after you pass through Keswick.
