Heavy sides trail - woodland walk with a lake view

This trail is one of contrasts. The beginning takes you through some of the mighty oaks adjacent to Masmill Beck.

The trail then climbs through an area of coniferous trees which border the forest boundary along Heavy Sides where the views of Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite Lake awaits you.
