One of my favorite Lake District Loops. Passing through Grasmere, Elterwater, Chapel Stile, Langdale, Blea Tarn, Wrynose, Hardknott, Boot, Eskdale, Cockley Beck, Seathwaite, Broughton Mills, Hawthwaite, Torver, Coniston. <br> <br> Lots of varations possible from this loop. For example, take the Eskdale-Ulpha road instead of going back up Hardknott Pass. Or include Tarn Hows, Hawkshead and Windermere by ferry before heading back to Grasmere. A wonderful and breathtaking ride, both literally and figuratively, with three tough climbs (out of Langdale to Blea Tarn, Wrynose Pass, Hardknott Pass). Lots of pubs along the way to make it up to your aching muscles. Don&#039;t miss The Britannia in Elterwater.
