Start Point: Glenridding Ullswater Steamers Car Park (NY389170)

Distance: 10.3 Km (6.5 miles)
Ascent: 200 meters
Time: 3.0hrs.

Directions:
Take an Ullswater Steamer to Howtown. Ullswater Steamers publish a timetable that is available from Tourist Information Centres. The 'crossing' takes approximately 30 minutes and costs £4.60 single for an adult (2007).

Alight at Howtown pier (NY 443199). At the foot of the pier turn right (West) over a footbridge and onto a footpath through the small wood, thence through a kissing gate to the lake shore. At the end of this path is another kissing gate which leads to a stepped track. On reaching the fellside turn right (North of Northwest) and follow the wall to the garden of Waternook House. Continue along the well trodden path and down to the shore before passing through a gate into Hallinhag Wood. Once through the wood you continue, on a footpath, through open fields to the hamlet of Sandwick (NY 424196).

Cross the wooden bridge and turn left onto the tarmac road. Ascend the hill to the edge of the hamlet where you turn right (West) onto the track. Shortly after joining the track into becomes more of a footpath and another path bears off to the South (NY418192) , up to a wrought iron seat. Keep to the lower path which follows the line of a drystone wall, unless you wish to follow the 'high level' route via Place Fell.

On reaching Scalehow Beck cross the wooden footbridge and continue along the main path through the woods. The track here is narrower and there is an uphill section to Silver Point overlooking Norfolk Island. Descend until you pick up another drystone wall which you follow to Side Farm (NY 398164). Turn right (Southwest) into the farmyard where you may purchase a welcome cup of tea or an ice cream. From the farm take the track across the fields to the school. Cross the road onto the footpath and turn right heading towards St Patrick's Church, Patterdale.
After the church the footpath ends, so cross to the other side, past the old Police Station and Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team's base. The footpath then enters a short section of wood before crossing, once again, to the other side of the road where the path continues above the road. At the end of this path, cross the road for the last time, pass through the wrought iron gate by the boat yard .Follow the path to the Steamer Pier and Car Park (NY389170).
