We are lucky enough to have this gem on our doorstep. Leave the i-pads and i-phones in the car and enjoy the wonderful heart of England. Walk, cycle or sit and take in this wonderful wildlife and smell the fresh air.

Great area to walk, lots of routes and all very scenic. We had great weather and made really good progress for the 8 miles we walked. Would definitely return and take an alternative route and see more of the area.

Walking through the Trough of Bowland is a delight even in winter. It was very picturesque as it had snowed.

A area of outstanding beauty ranging from Forest to fella and secluded villages. Signposting to main areas could be better but worth the effort exploring. Do not go without a good map and suitable footwear as the paths go from pedestrian pathways to boggy in...More

Fabulous walking area, suitable for all abilities, not too “busy” but clearly popular. A hidden gem, perhaps. Spotted ravens and grey wagtails on way up. Great views over a post glacial landscape.

You can head following the A6 up to Williamson's park and then head towards the abattoir/Lancaster Leisure park. Keep walking leaving those to your right and soon you will see signs for it.
