Great Walks to do:
The Rusland valley
A countryside ramble over quiet, secluded landscape with a surprisingly varied terrain of heathland, woodland, marshland as well as farmland with wooded hills all around. The pub in the middle of Oxen Park Village is ideal for refreshments.
Coniston Old Man via the Jack Diamond Path
The Jack Diamond Path up Coniston Old Man is one of the few paths in the Lake District named after an individual - unlike the other paths though, this one has a very recent history. Once you have gained the summit of Coniston Old Man then a round of Brim Fell, Dow Crag, Buck Pike, Brown Pike and a descent along the Walna Scar Road will make the perfect mountain day. The terrain includes a steep minor road, woodland, moorland, steep mountainside, high mountain ridges, exposed col and an old pack horse road.
