The Forest of Bowland was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1964.  The AONB covers much of north-east Lancashire, with a small part in North Yorkshire, and the name "forest" is used in its traditional sense of "royal hunting ground". 

Gisburn is one of my favourite trail centres, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland , having amazing trails and views to match. The trails are in a figure of 8 and are technically challenging. The intention is to do the northern loop twice so we can enjoy the roller coaster ride of  Hully Gully  twice !  (19 miles (30 km) in total.)

These red graded sections of this trail are suitable for experienced  mountain bikers only. Full-face helmet and pads are recommended. This area is remote with limited mobile signal. Gisburn Forest Hub, does have a café and Bike Hire (£29 /day). Car parking is £3 for the day. Google “Gisburn Forest Hub, Clitheroe BB7 4TS”,  to find the centre .
