This 7½-mile circular route provides one of the most magical views in Lancashire for keen walkers who don’t mind a bit of a climb. It’s a rich reward at the half-way point of what is quite a challenging walk – and the good news is it’s pretty much downhill all the way back to the pub!
How far? 7.4 miles/11.9km
How long? 4 hours
How hard? Pretty challenging – a long, steady climb on quiet lanes, footpaths and forest tracks and the occasional boggy stretch
