From Arnside to Kirkby Lonsdale this walking route in South Lakeland crosses undulating landscapes of woods, moss and rocky fell. Ordnance Survey Explorer OL7 The English Lakes South Eastern area Starting at Arnside YH I suggest you take in Arnside Knot for the view over the sands before crossing the railway line and heading east towards Hazelslack and Underlaid Wood beyond.
