You can start walk a Keswick but you can only go approx 1 mile as bridges damaged in floods still not repaired there are signs but are not easy to see as they have been up for years

Ran along the railway line while staying on holiday. Shame that the bridge that washed away hasn’t been repaired yet. A beautiful walk or run from Keswick.

The weather was a bit rainy, but the railway path was not muddy, and gave us a good route to walk in to town away from the traffic.

Nice walk, but you cannot get very far on it. If you try to take it to the Stone Circle, a route recommended in pre-2015 guide books, a bridge you'd have to cross is washed out and impassable.

Sorry, the path is not paved. The good news is that it should be OK for a bike with stabilisers. The path is both flat and even and the surface is well compacted with occasional stretches of gravel. My wife's mobility... More

You can use a wheel chair on some of the route starting from the old railway station but you might want to confirm at the Keswick tourist office.
