Lancashire Walking Trails

I just ran across a neat feature on the VisitLancashire website (the official tourism site for Lancashire). They've got over 70 free walking trails to download, ranging from short walks (under 5 miles long) to medium walks (over 5 miles) and longer walks that can be broken up into short sections.

You can take a walk that follows in the footsteps of famous writers like JRR Tolkien or the Bronte sisters, or explore the grounds of historic houses like Gawthorpe Hall. Hike the long-distance Pendle Way, or take a trail that follows the course of the River Lune. There are also themed walking trails, including Heritage Walks and Coastal paths. There's even a Lancashire Cheese Walk!

Trail information includes maps with in-depth details on what to look for along the way and how to get there. Just print off the leaflet, pop it into a pocket, and away you go. Its a pretty nifty resource if you're in the Lancashire area, or even just planning a visit. See the VisitLancashire website for more information about the walking trails.
