I'll be finishing the Dales Way in late April and staying in Ambleside for several days before returning south.

Does anyone have favorite day walks in that area? I'm looking at the Fairfield Horseshoe and the Old Man of Coniston walks, but perhaps there are others.

By the way, I found a way to take the Carlisle-Settle RR back to Leeds. You take the bus to Sedbergh, stay overnight, then bus to Garsdale (does not run every day) in the morning to catch the train. The internet reveals all!
