Help connect Horsforth

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Horsforth’s Slow Ways.

It's a safe route and would feel fine walking it on my own (but maybe not in the evening through the woods as a solo woman). The route given was accurate and I'd be happy to walk it again....
