Copeland is very well placed for walking. You can enjoy an amble around one of the many villages and hamlets or undertake something more challenging like the 'coast to coast walk'. With most of the borough within the Lake District National Park you are guaranteed great countryside and endless opportunities for refreshment stops and overnight accommodation.
www.golakes.co.uk has created a series of railway walks which allow you to enjoy the Copeland countryside on arrival at one of the local railway stations.

There are endless opportunities for dog walking in and around the borough. Naturally we would encourage you to be a responsible dog owner and pick up after your pet. Bins are widely available and we would urge you to use them. There are some places such as cemeteries and playgrounds where we have introduced dog control orders which either exclude dogs altogehter, or require them to be kept on a lead. Please familiarise yourself with these areas. For further details go to the dog control order page. We hope you and your pet enjoy walking in Copeland.
