Red Rose Trail

180 km / 112 miles

Cumbria, Lancashire
This Red Rose Trail follows a beautiful and historic route around the North of Lancashire. Totalling just over 100 miles it is designed to be walked in seven days, but for less ambitious hikers huge enjoyment can be taken from exploring smaller sections of the route.

Starting and finishing by Lancaster’s famous castle, the Trail begins and ends along beautiful Morecambe Bay; in between it leads through the fine towns of Garstang, Kirkby Lonsdale and Morecambe, as well as a multitude of lovely small Lancashire villages such as Chipping, Whitewell, Waddington, Slaidburn, Wray and Silverdale.

The route follows footpaths, bridleways, canal towpaths, coastal walkways and quiet lanes, through woodland, pasture and over the imposing roof of Bowland’s ancient forest. Included are suggestions for excellent lunch stops and for overnight hotels, bed and breakfasts and pubs. Directions are detailed and the book includes a great deal of fascinating information and stories about places passed along the way.
