Silurian Way - picturesque Lake District hike

The ultimate walk, this trail takes you down one side of the Grizedale valley and back up the other, passing many of the sculptures along the way, as well as some of the best views in the forest. It includes the summit of Carron Crag, the highest point in the forest.

This trail is named after the geological time period in which the forests characteristic grey slate and shale rocks were formed.
