Wild Bowland: Cross o’ Greet & Bowland Knotts

Cross of Greet Bridge – River Hodder – Bowland Knotts – Raven’s Castle – Cross of Greet Bridge

This rugged walk links the two high level passes across the Forest of Bowland, traversing some wild upland territory where merlin and peregrine scythe across the moorland and lonely gritstone outcrops punctuate the primal landscape. While it’s a relatively short walk, this is tough terrain and it will present a stern test, but the rewards are a sense of splendid isolation beyond the reach of mobile phone coverage and a chance to reconnect with the wild amid some stunning scenery in one of England’s last wilderness areas.
