About this walk
Gummer's How is a hill in the southern part of the Lake District, on the eastern shore of Windermere. It’s a short walk of 1.5 Miles and should take between 45 minutes to an hour to get up to the top (the highest point is 321 m or 1,053 ft), admire the amazing views and walk back down. The drive can be a bit hairy getting to the Forrest Commission Car Park but once there the path is clearly signposted. You can either start through the car park (postcode LA11 6NR) taking a left path through the words to cross the road and go through a signposted gate or you can start by leaving the car park and turning right up the road and go left through the same gate. The route should be self explanatory. There is a harder scramble option for the more adventurous dogs (ours is a Westie Mountain Goat 😉) or an easier but longer version for older or smaller less agile dogs. Whichever way, it’s worth it because the views are beautiful and on a fine sunny day you can see for miles. FYI - for people who suffer from Bovinophobia, there are freely roaming cows on the walking paths and on the top of the fell. They are however super relaxed. Keep dogs on leads around them.
