Leaving Ulverston, the first 3k of this route is roads, 2k of it urban/suburban (though not unpleasant) and 1k rural with no pavement. This section was less busy but not ideal. There are good views back towards Ulverston and the Hoad Monument (looks like a lighthouse). From here the route crosses fields, goes along farm lanes and the odd short quiet road sections, and open, limestone-strewn sheep grazing. The village of Great Urswick has a pub.
There were gates (occasionally tied up or rusted), stiles (stone pinch, rickety wooden, or ladders), kissing gates, one or two electric fences (but not blocking the path), and not enough signs and some footpaths were unclear. However, it was all very beautiful countryside, with nice views. There were also sheep (mainly), cows, horses, buzzards and curlews.
The last section into Dalton followed a tiny bit of former railway line before reaching a short section of housing, then the station.
This was a lovely route except for the 3k of roads at the start, although there was the occasional navigation challenge.
