Scenic coastal route from Ulverston to Barrow in Furness
The Low Furness Peninsula - an undiscovered gem of South Lakeland.
Cycling & Walking in Low Furness is usually rated as easy to moderate, although there are a few hills which even the most seasoned will find a challenge.
All of the routes have numerous vantage points with spectacular views of the Lakeland fells, Morecambe Bay, the Irish Sea and the Duddon Estuary. Coupled with the peninsula's mild climate, the area makes an ideal base for these outdoor activities.

Suggested cycle routes

The 'Cycle & See' leaflet which can be found in Tourist Info centres and racks, describes 5 rides in and around Ulverston.
Ride 3 is entirely within Low Furness and is shown on the
Walk & Ride map with orange dots.
At the western end the route coincides with the
Walney to Wear long distance ride (identified as route 20).
There is also a short detour which takes you past Furness Abbey.

Suggested Walks

Low Furness is criss-crossed with numerous footpaths, bridleways and green lanes, in addition to the quiet country lanes, ideal for walking - BUT BEWARE of mechanised road traffic.

The Cistercian Way and the Cumbria Coastal paths are both well established walks which include Low Furness.
These are marked on the Walk & Ride map with red dots.
