Distance and Time
Our walk today was no less than 1 mile. If we hadn’t stopped I guess this walk would take on average 20 mintues. However, there are many other routes around Beacon Fell and it is a great place to begin walking the Forest of Bowland.
Parking, roads and amenities
It’s a very popular spot so it has toilets with family and disabled facilities, a visitor centre and a cafe. There’s also the odd thing dotted about which should keep the kids amused for a little while, such as a carving made to look like a snake and used as a walking platform. There’s also some other carvings and sculptures to see and the Beacon Fell Visitor Centre.
Great paths with well marked sign posts but can get a little boggy if it has been raining heavily.
We parked in the second small car park after the visitor centre and walked straight up to the summit (266 Metres). We then strolled back down to the visitor centre on one of the other routes.
