hi. did a circular route of rivington nr chorley yesterday. some good natural trails with plenty of route options
and varying terrain. one steep road section.
i started and finished from the car park near the school.
a great finish riding along reservoir past go ape .
you can detour to the lower barn cafe for some decent grub !
as you can see between points 4 and 5 i went off route slightly
there is a bridleway sign on right on track down from the pike. i retraced my steps
to it! nice steep descent here with 2 gates to negotiate

    Oh there's plenty more. Try going off the back of the mast road down to Belmont; along the witton weavers' way; round Darwen/Jubilee Tower and then back through Brinscall

    Sounds good

    Or will google map it :)

    Sorry, no links; just local knowledge I'm afraid. I'm sure Google may have something though

    I've done that, hard work and a scary as hell descent that made me fear for my life. Brilliant views though.
