This is a beautiful area to walk in, easily accessible by road or by public transport from Lancaster. The walk has several distinct sections: a track and a lane followed by pastures, a section along the river and a narrow path on a wood above the river. There is a lengthy but very gradual climb away from the river at the start, compensated for by a steep descent on a lane later on. I much prefer this walk in the summer, not only because it is drier but because the waders have come inland to nest, the sand martins are back at their nests in the riverbanks and there are early summer flowers like the bluebells and the wild garlic in the woods.

The car park at the start has toilets and a little café that is nearly always open between June and September (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays otherwise).

The small car park was full many cars had been parked on the road near 1 and 2 and the police were ticketing them.

Walked this in glorious weather 25/5/20. A lovely route. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The climb up was gradual enough not to be noticeable. Great views from the top with sheep, cattle and a deer. The route down and back along the river were very pleasant. Only passed two other couples which is fine in current circumstances. We had to park in a village past point 2 but that is not a problem on a circular route.

We completed this walk on 3/9/15 and highly recommend. It was well signposted with excellent views. A few stiles had been replaced and a footbridge added but easy enough to follow. Only comment would be the snack bar at the start is only open Friday- Sunday. We went on a Thursday!
