Walk of the Month: High Bentham Circular Walk

We like to help you explore the area whilst you’re staying with us. For those of you that can get out on foot, we hope our monthly walks help give you a little inspiration whether you visit us weekly, monthly or just once a year.

For July we are sticking close to home with the High Bentham Circular walk. Many of you will have enjoyed the riverside walk along to Low Bentham, but did you know that you can also do a lovely little loop along the river in the other direction, starting from just outside the park entrance?



Where to wander this month:  High Bentham Circular 

This moderate loop takes in a quieter path than the route to low Bentham.

The details: 

Distance:  5 miles

Approx. Time: Approx. 3 hours

Terrain: Roads, tracks, fields, stiles, gates, cattle grids, some muddy slopes and boggy areas after wet weather.

Important info: 

Please rake care on roads and access tracks. it is likely that livestock, including cattle, will be encountered along this route. Dogs should be kept under close control, ideally on a lead. Please make sure to follow the countryside code.

The route:

You can start this loop either from Bentham centre, or from the old church outside the entrance to the park (ask in reception if you are not sure).

Along the way you will see some lovely scenery along the valley of the River Wenning and wonderful views of the Forest of Bowland fells to the South and the hills of the Yorkshire Dales to the North.

Grab your walking boots and view the route here.

Walk maps for this walk and many others can be found in our park reception and you can view all of our other walk recommendations here.

Let us know if you’ve enjoyed the route and share your snaps on our social media pages so others can be inspired.
