Hodder Way

27 miles (43 km)

Follow the River Hodder on this stunning waterside walk through the beautiful Forest of Bowland.
The walk begins at Great Mitton and heads north through Whitewell, Newton and Slaidburn before a wonderful section around Stocks Reservoir finishes the route. There's great views of the surrounding Bowland Hills and lots of wildlife to look out for on the river.
The Inn at Whitewell sits next to the river at Whitewell and is a great place to stop for refreshments or use as a base. The route also passes the expansive Gisburn Forest which has miles of woodland trails, streams and waterfalls to explore.
