West Lancs walks

Planned Walks

The Parks and Countryside Service plan and organise a number of guided walks throughout the year. These take place at locations throughout West Lancashire and vary in length from short 1hr long health walks between 1-3 miles in length to all day country hikes that can be anything up to 12 miles long. 

We have created maps and route information for some of these walks and you can find them below.

Please be aware that these documents are intended to be rough guides. Anybody wishing to undertake the walks should ensure that they also carry a copy of the OS Explorer 285 map for more accurate mapping information.
