The Walking Festival runs every August and provides walks to suit people of all abilities.
The festival offers everything from short, themed, informative strolls to long distance countryside rambles. A variety of different walk leaders and external organisations work alongside the Ranger's helping to provide walks that cover as much of West Lancashire's wonderful countryside as possible.
Details of individual walks for the 2018 August Walking Festival are available in our events pages.
Walks are open to all but anyone under the age of 14 should be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or older. Please ensure that you wear clothing and footwear to walk through uneven/countryside terrain. Longer walks - 7 miles plus - will have a scheduled lunch stop and you will require a packed lunch. It is good practice to carry a drink with you on all walks.
