The myriad of little lanes around the villages of Eden are wonderful for cycling and the variety of off road routes is endless.
The fabulous fells around Kirkby Stephen offer some of the best, uncrowded sites for paragliding in the UK.
The Upper Eden area is also outstanding riding country with a good network of bridleways. There are pony trekking and trail riding facilities available.
Walkers are Welcome
For the promotion of walking facilities in the Upper Eden area. In April 2009, Kirkby Stephen became the first town in Cumbria to be awarded Walkers are Welcome status.
