    Undeniably one of the best gravel tracks I've ever ridden in the UK (or anywhere for that matter. Despite being relatively close to cities and villages, this feels a million miles from anywhere.

    Watch out for puddles even in the summer, you're probably going to get your feet wet.

    There's also signs up here for the Lancashire Witches Walk.

    Great section of gravel trail up over Salter Fell through an area of beautiful moorland, also open to motorcycles but generally very quiet. Good surface for gravel bikes except for short section on south side

    Remote gravel path, in parts quite heavy going but rewarding views of the fells.

    Good views, and feels nice and remote. Decent gravel surface, but gets very rough towards the middle.

    First time up here, mid week on a roasting hot day. Didn't come across anyone up here.Great descent from East to West. A little rough in the middle which required a short walk but entirely worth it.

    Stock up on food/drinks at Slaidburn Post Office. If heading towards Lancaster, the climbs directly after Salter Fell are killer.
