Nicky Nook and Grizedale (easy 6 mile circular – April 2010)

<< Back to walk list

Nicky Nook is a popular spot which is just a little way out from Scorton –  a nice little village lying between Garstang and Lancaster.  It can be reached easily from the A6 and there’s also a decent pub called Stout’s Bar.

Difficulty, distance and time

This is just about an easy walk, but perhaps the shorter route up and around Nicky Nook might be more suited to the beginner. The walk is about 6 miles (9.6 km) and should take around 2 – 3 hours.

Parking and amenities

There is reasonable parking but on a nice day the small village centre can be busy with people visiting the garden centre and cafe, so you may have to park a little further out.  Scorton also has a small walking and bike shop called Bowland Cycling.

Elevation and terrain

The highest point is Nicky Nook, which is about 215m (705ft).  Underfoot is pretty good, with a lot of route being farm tracks and road.  However there are a few fields to cross and it can be a little boggy in wet weather.
