A spectacular Route Along the River Greta to Threlkeld
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair, Mobility Scooter
Following the old Keswick to Penrith Railway railway line, the path weaves its way over the River Greta on original metal railway bridges. This fast-flowing river offers fantastic views and is home to herons and dippers. The perfect surface for wheelchair users & mobility scooters etc. 10 km or 6.2 miles maximum to Threlkeld and back although the route is out and back so can be shortened at any point. A firm favourite in the Lake District National Park Guide Miles Without Stiles, badly damaged during Storm Desmond but following a £8 million refurbishment it is reopen and more accessible than ever. It was busy but the path is wide enough for social distancing (some more respectful of this than others). Please bear in mind this is a public footpath so there are no toilet facilities en-route. https://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/visiting/things-to-do/walking/mileswithoutstiles/mws37
Transport & Parking
Perfect smooth & level surface for wheelchairs, mobility scooters and hand cycles etc. Plenty of seating so ample opportunity to rest. Out and back so the distance is up to you.
Plan in advance no toilets en-route
