Whinlatter Pass and the forests which surround it were a cool retreat from the heatwave we had a few weeks back. Heading into the shade of the trees, my family and I hiked along the Comb Beck Trail at Whinlatter Forest, where many of the paths turned into shadowy dirt tracks which seemed to have been plucked from a fairy tail! The views were amazing from the highest vantage points at the start of the walk, allowing you to look out over the pine trees. I felt on top of the world!
The height of the trees and the little sunlight which was able to filter through made it magical.
There was a slight breeze and with the trees being so tall you could hear the wood creaking as they swayed which was both comforting and a little eerie! I wouldn't have liked to have been alone here at night!
The views were amazing and I highly recommend going here if you ever find yourself in the Lakes :)
I was also very lucky to spot a beautiful Red Admiral butterfly too!
I hope you're all well!
