Furness Way

121 km / 75 miles

Cumbria
A route across southern Lakeland from coast to coast, beginning at Arnside on the eastern side of Morecambe Bay and finishing at Ravenglass on the Irish Sea. The aim of the route is to cross the southern Lake District, a relatively quieter region, by traversing a good deal of the old county of Lancashire, north of the Sands. The main portion of this once detached part of Lancashire has been know for centuries as Furness, giving its name to the route.
