Walkers in the Lake District today (October 20th) may include a number of people enjoying waterfalls on a guided trek run by national park rangers.
Starting at Elterwater at 10:30 BST, the event will see the falls at Skelwith and Colwith being explored in the course of the 8.1 mile, six-hour walk.
Like other treks being run by national park employees, this is one where walking boots
are described as "essential" and those outdoors at this time of year may also benefit from putting on fleeces
could be particularly useful for those planning a hike with a waterfall along the route, as a wet day may be a good time to go with the volume of water increasing.
Other waterfalls near Elterwater include the Dungeon Ghyll falls in Great Langdale, while the Lodore Falls near Keswick and Aira Force near Ullswater are among the other notable cascades in the national park.
