Nestled at the foot of the West Pennines, the market town of Chorley is beautifully situated for some great days on the trails. Walks around Chorley take you up to stunning moorland viewpoints, amongst tranquil woodland and into verdant river valleys.
You have a wealth of hiking options. Your boots can take you onto the atmospheric hills that overlook the town, such as the prominent 1,191-foot (363 m) Rivington Pike with its iconic tower and staggering panorama. Back in the valleys, spring ushers in a colourful riot of wildflowers in the gorgeous woodland of Chorley’s country parks.The manner in which the region’s industrial heritage has been reclaimed by nature is indicative of the character of hikes around Chorley. Wildlife abounds in nature reserves built around disused industrial sites, whilst nearby reservoirs offer delightful circular walks. Add pleasant canal ambles and riverside strolls and you’ll soon see why Chorley is such a walker’s delight.
