Discover Walking at Kielder Waterside

What better way to explore the great outdoors than on foot?
With over 600 square kilometres of forest and 27 miles of shoreline to choose from, Kielder Waterside is the ideal starting point for you whether you fancy a light stroll, a long walk or a complete hike.

You can pick from challenging long distance trails to more leisurely strolls that are perfect for the family. The Lakeside Way also provides you with over 26 miles to explore.

The Lakeside way is a multi-user trail that goes around the shoreline of Kielder Water. You can choose to walk all of it or parts of it and it makes for a stunning and unique walking experience. Whilst walking along the Lakeside Way you will be able to discover more than twenty pieces from our outdoor Art & Architecture collection as well as spot some of our wildlife.

It is always advisable to check at one of our visitor centres before starting your journey. As the Park is also an operational forest, small sections of tracks might be closed from time to time for forestry purposes or further development work.
