One of the most beautiful walks near Lancaster, the Lune Valley Ramble is 16.5 miles (26.5 km) long and traces the course of the River Lune’s lower reaches through some of the North West’s finest lowland countryside.
Bounded by high moors, limestone hills and shadowed by the distant peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Leck Fell, the route offers excellent, easy walking and is signposted and waymarked throughout.
The Ramble links the City of Lancaster with the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, two very historic but very different centres. It makes the most of the valley’s tranquil pastoral setting, passing through woodland, meadows and along the riverside itself. Along and near to the route are picturesque villages and hamlets, castles and ancient churches, nature reserves and wildlife in abundance.
