Car park, Gummers How

Found at the southern end of Windermere, Gummer's How is a very popular little fell, and with only four hundred or so feet of ascent from the car park to the summit, it proves to be a firm favourite with families.

Walking through the woods below Gummers How.

Once you're out of the woods and onto the open fellside the views of Windermere really open up.

And now for the return back to the car park.

I know it was only a short walk we'd done, but that was our intention. Regrettably, it's not very often we get down to this part of the Lake District so we decided to combine a short walk with a visit to Cartmel.
