Discover a new corner of Cragside on a walk. Explore the network of paths that weave across the estate. Some paths remain closed while tree safety works continue following the winter storms, but more routes are re-opening soon.

Armstrong trail at Cragside

The Armstrong trail takes in some of the most dramatic scenery at Cragside. Follow the flow of water around Armstrong's man-made Tumbleton Lake, stroll along meandering path that hugs the Debdon Burn and stand at the foot of some of the tallest trees in the country before climbing the stone steps of the Rock Garden towards the House.

Now open: Nelly’s Moss lakes walk

Enjoy a family-friendly flat walk around two of Cragside’s historic lakes. The lakes were engineered by Armstrong and formed part of his pioneering hydro-electricity system. The lakes are home to lots of wildlife. Look out for frogs and toads crossing your path and even herons dipping their feet in the water. There's an alternative route for buggies and pushchairs too.
