The Duckboards Walk

River Side Walk - 90 minutes

On entering the Borrowdale road turn right towards Keswick. On the right there is a large rock outcrop called Shepherd's Crag, a popular place for climbers. 200 yards on the left, after the Crag, is a gate. Pass through this gate and head for the bridge over the river which flows into Derwentwater. Follow the duck boards along the lake shore passing through a small gate towards the end of the boards, 200 yards after the end of the boards the path branches left onto a grassy rake leaving the gravel path. Take this path which leads away from the lake shore, along a track and eventually through a gate into the road. Turn left and follow the road round to Grange. See if you can spot the old 'phone box (not working). Cross the famous twin bridges and turn left into the Borrowdale road which will lead you back to Greenbank.
