In Lancaster you can enjoy more waterside trails along the Lancaster Canal or try the Lancaster Circular Walk. Here you could also visit the Fairfield Nature Reserve. It's a pleasant place for a walk with wetlands, a lovely apple orchard and lots of birdlife to look out for. You can find the reserve in the Abraham Heights area of the city about a 10 minute detour east from the trail.
