Gummer’s How. The Lake District

You climb quickly on this walk. There’s a path that leads from the road starting as a gentle track through the trees before turning into steps that go straight up to the top. I tend to do this when I’m short on time as you can get to the top in 20-30 minutes if you’re in a rush, or you can take your time and enjoy the views on the way.

Gummer’s How is a small hill near Fell Foot, from the top you get great views over the full length of Windermere and across to the distant fells with the Coniston Range, Langdale Pikes and Fairfield Horseshoe being the most prominent.

Aswell as views over the water and surrounding fells, there are a lot of nice trees scattered around, which in the right conditions can make for some great photographs.

I used to really like going into the woods near here too but they forested by favourite area so now there’s only tree stumps unfortunately.
