Biking - Borrowdale Tour: Tucked away on the western side of Borrowdale is an old packhorse track. It descends towards Grange from part way down Honister Pass and nips behind the craggy ramparts of Castle Crag. It's a great descent on a mountain bike with a consistent gradient and the odd technical section for added interest.
Climbing - nearby classics include Corvus > Raven Crag (147m / Diff), Gillercomb Buttress > Gillercomb (195m / Severe), Troutdale Pinnacle > Black Crag (105m / Severe), Hedera Grooves > Lower Falcon Crag (42m / VS 4c), The Lost Boys > Steel Knotts (30m / HVS 5a), The Bludgeon > Shepherd’s crag (54m / E1 5b).
Walking - Catbells, Scafell, Bowfell Circular - or just a scenic trip to Watendlath Bridge - are all possible from this beautiful valley. There is also sailing, various types of paddling and swimming on Derwentwater, and a via ferrata just up the road at Honister.
