This is a steepish in parts 4.5/5 mile uphill walk through the Terrace Gardens. We will go at a leisurely pace to the summit of Rivington Pike with great views from the top. Stout shoes or walking boots are recommended as it can be muddy depending on weather conditions and there are a large number of steps in the gardens.

We will stop near the Japanese garden lake, so bring a packed lunch. There are two pubs near the walk’s end.

Start Point and Time

The walk starts at 12noon from the car park to the rear of The Great House Barn (postcode BL6 7SB).

Directions to Start

From the M61 Junction 6 take the A6027 passing the Bolton Wanderers, Macron Stadium on the left, take the left fork at the Beehive Roundabout onto the A673 signposted Horwich. Continue along this road passing the Fire Station on your left until you reach a mini-roundabout, go straight over and take the 1st right onto Lever Park Avenue. Continue straight onto Rivington Lane. The car park entrance is on the left behind The Great House Barn.
