Really enjoyed this walk, not hard going.

Lovely walk with some great views - easy to follow. A nice variety of paths across fields, down tracks and alongside the reservoirs; a small amount of time on quiet roads. A little soggy in places (there had been a lot of rain the week before) but all negotiable. Lots of off lead areas for the dog. Nice meal at the Strawbury Duck (dog friendly!) before heading back to the car.

Lovely walk,the first part dogs must be on a lead then it’s dog friendly, lots of step but the views are excellent on a sunny day

walk ok muddy in alot places

I would not recommend this walk! The conditions underfoot were terrible, it was very boggy and much further than stated.

great walk and we ambled and is it in about 2 hrs on a damp morning . The section towards Stoneyhurst College was excessively muddy 'smooshy' (according to my daughter) and we should have stayed in the road 6423 back. Highly recommend

Trail was good was extremely muddy in parts

Nice walk to do in an evening, unfortunately dog had to be on the lead as sheep are around. Some very nice views would recommend.

Great local walk to get those 10,000 steps in. The same bridge connecting Aveham Park and the local bike trail is still closed; has been for a while but you can easily go round it taking all of a 30 second diversion. A little overgrown in parts but nothing major. A great walk for families. DOG FRIENDLY throughout!

on a summer's day this walk is great. completely flat trail around the reserveoir

Lovely walk, parked the car next to the sea ( Sunday so no charge) and walked around the the sea front, then walked into the forest mid way around which the kids loved, after that we followed the signs to arnside knott, nice walk up with lovely views at the top, at the end there is a pub on the corner which does some great real ale beers ! And 2 beers and 2 kids drinks for £9, which isn't bad .

Great trail around the Rivington area that I would recommend to anybody that enjoys hiking. Bit muddy at parts, but still an enjoyable time with some lovely views

This trail is amazing for anyone wanting to experience some amazing British scenery. Although it is classified as moderate, I would like to bring to your attention that this trail is not suitable for everyone (not accessible for wheelchair users or individuals with young kids). Would definitely recommend this trail to anyone who would like a challenge. Can’t wait to embark on this trail again!

kids loved it here, plenty to see and do and just enough to tire them out

Trail not up to date, no guidance whatsoever

Nice flat walk on countryside outside Ormskirk with mostly open countryside. In July some of the paths were heavily overgrown so bring a stick to clear your way. About ½km in you swing by a local landfill, so those of a sensitive nose would benefit from a nose-peg.

We completed this route today. There were lots of inaccuracies in the map and a lot of "off path walking". Some sections were diagonal through fields of sheep and cows, which in my opinion is just wrong (country code and all that) A lot of the walk was overgrown and no visible path. my husband had a tick in his leg when we got home too. That said we had a great walk with awesome views. The weather was fantastic too.
