Trail Running (UK) - - Routes - Kielder Wa­ter and For­est Park www.forestry.gov.uk/kielder

Kielder Wa­ter and For­est Park cov­ers a vast land­scape of trees, hills, wa­ter and sky. It’s a place that feels truly re­mote and wild, where you can run all day and not see a sin­gle other per­son. There are many out­stand­ing trails here for run­ning, walk­ing and moun­tain bik­ing; from the lake­side path that takes in a full marathon dis­tance around Kielder Wa­ter to the tech­ni­cal trails in the sur­round­ing hills. Deadwater Fell rises from the heart of Kielder For­est which, at 250 square miles, is Eng­land’s largest for­est area. At 571 me­tres, the sum­mit of Deadwater Fell is one of the high­est points in Kielder and strad­dles the bor­der be­tween Scot­land and Eng­land. For a chal­leng­ing but en­joy­able way­marked run, fol­low the sign­posts for the Deadwater walk­ing trail.
