Those thinking of taking on a walking challenge may be interested in the Dales Way, which despite its name does not just include walking in the Yorkshire Dales.
Although it starts in Yorkshire at Ilkley, it finishes in the Lake District at Windermere and on June 21st the National Park authority is conducting a guided walk to the lakeside town from Staveley.
Starting at 10:30 BST, the route is six miles in length and lasts for 4.5 hours.
The route is a linear one with a bus ride back and walking boots
are described as "essential" for the trek.
Bringing a packed lunch has also been advised.
For those looking to take on a long distance route, the Dales Way may provide an ideal combination of two national parks, varied scenery and attractive villages.
Heading out of the Lake District, the way passes through Kendal and heads south-easterly into the Yorkshire Dales, where features en route include views of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
