Length of The Cumbria Way

The Cumbria Way Low RouteThe Cumbria Way High Route

☼☼☼☼☼☼☼


The official length of the Cumbria Way is often quoted as 112km (70 miles), but the actual length walked is harder to determine being dependent upon an individual walker’s style and approach. For example, a walker intent upon following the public rights of way and ‘official route’ as precisely as possible will have a walk of a different length than someone simply following the paths on the ground. Short cuts, deviations and alternative routes, a matter of individual choice, will also shorten or lengthen the route


This website uses the paths on the ground as the basis of measurement, taking the way most likely to be used by the majority of walkers intent on following the official route without being obsessive. The distance calculated thus is approximately 119km (74 miles) for the High Route and 124km (77 miles) for the Low Route alternatives
