The path runs along Combe Gill to Thornthwaite Fell before passing Combe Head and arriving at the Glaramara summit. From here there are fantastic views of the Borrowdale Valley, Derwent Water and Skiddaw.
To extend your walking in the area you could head to the nearby Seathwaite car park and enjoy a circular walk to Styhead Tarn and Sprinkling Tarn. This includes a visit to the lovely Taylor Gill Force Waterfall.
The Allerdale Ramble also passes Seatoller
You could pick up this long distance trail and explore the woodland and riverside paths along the River Derwent.
