Discover Hyndburn

Walking in Hyndburn

The Discover Hyndburn led walks have been taking place since 2018 and we have now created a series of fourteen self-guided walk leaflets.   They range from 2 to 10 miles, over a variety of surfaces from smooth to rough and start near public transport bus stops across the townships of Hyndburn.  The self-guided walk leaflets also include local history information and the routes pass by key features, along local greenways, go via woodlands and greenspace areas managed by PROSPECTS or places maintained by local volunteers from the township-based PROSPECTS Panels.

The leaflets are aimed at people new to walking, those returning to walking, people new to the Hyndburn area as well as visitors and ramblers wishing to explore Hyndburn and the surrounding areas.

You can download the pdf leaflet versions of the walks from the table.  Please see the Important Information for Walkers below the List of walks.

To get the full version of the Discover Hyndburn maps and the FREE GPX route directions you will need ViewRanger.  ViewRanger is a digital guide to the outdoors with downloadable route guides, outdoor maps, and powerful GPS navigation features. Their mobile app runs on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Android smartphones, tablets, and watches.
