Ennerdale Forest

The Ennerdale valley, around Ennerdale Lake, contains one of the largest forests in Cumbria, and every year produces the annual timber requirements of a town the size of Cockermouth.


Smithy Beck Walk

Ennerdale is rarely busy, being a long way from the tourist attractions of central Lakeland. There are more than 20 miles of forest road, and many other paths open to the public in the Ennerdale valley.


A leaflet is available describing several walks, including one around the lake. Most start at Bowness Knott car park, at the end of the road from Ennerdale Village.
