This guide contains ten family-friendly and easy-paced short, circular walks covering the Bowland AONB. The turn-by-turn route directions with waypoint photos guide you safely to pretty villages, historic towns and along accessible waterside trails, across fells and through forest. You can read about the ghosts of Lancaster Castle, identify moorland wildlife, and find scenic picnic sites or cafés to complete your day.

Around the Forest of Bowland fringes at Caton, Lancaster, Scorton, Garstang and Clitheroe, you can enjoy riparian rambles along the Lune and Ribble, and strolls beside the Lancaster and Leeds & Liverpool canals. At Gisburn, Dunsop Bridge and Beacon Fell easy-going trails lead to the heart of Bowland’s moorlands and forests.
