Great memories as a kid coming up here with my dad... awesome walk

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

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

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.

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.

Absolutely stunning views and beautiful area. I wouldn’t rate this walk as Easy but Moderate. Quite hilly and not suitable for people out of shape. We had to turn back about 1/3 into walk because it was too hard for my partner to continue.

We just got back! What a beautiful walk, nice and easy. Perfect for dogs, loved the walk back through the woodland by the creek.

Absolutely great walk. Beast for a hill at the start but the views are so worth it. I always take my dogs with me and I had no trouble getting them round through the gates. The obly downfall is the last third of the walk if you have your dog with you. I had to hoist my German Shepherd over several of the fence crossings as there was nowhere for them to get through. At the very last part of the walk where the track appears to go on the road and then back off again, stick to the road! You will get stuck at the bottom of the field and have to turn back! My four and six year old children really enjoyed this walk. So many baby lambs!

Good hike. Very boggy and muddy even in May so not one for winter. The route here tries to take you off the main path. DO NOT stray from the path. Quite irresponsible to publish a route that does so. One for more experienced ramblers. It’s more like 15km and there’s a strong descent on slippy grass.

Really enjoyed this wall and will definitely be back.

weather was quite windy , a bob hat may be needed even on a warmer day as it’s very open . the initial slope to the top is a little steep but it soon levels out and offers fantastic views , lots of gliders in the area to admire . we parked on the road as did others

We arrived at the trail at around 10:10am. We saw a few people on our walk but no more than 20 in the entirety of the walk. The initial climb up Parlick is a hard one, but the rest of the trail is a nice walk with some amazing views on the way. Thoroughly recommend for anyone.

Love this walk. Nice to go to The Barn afterwards for something to eat.

Nice walk with good places to stop for photos. Worth noting you can’t take dogs on the route though!
