The Yellow Hammer walking route is a very good reason to get out and about in the Ormskirk area and discover the area’s wonderful public rights of way network.
Ormskirk is an historic market town in the heart of West Lancashire. The trail starts and finishes at Ormskirk railway station or bus station taking you through the historic town centre and out to the rolling countryside beyond, boasting stunning views of Lancashire and Merseyside.
The fields surrounding Ormskirk are mostly arable so whether it’s cereal crops blowing in the breeze or the harvesting of root crops, the views along this route change from season to season. This walk is fairly level with some gentle gradients. Follow the map in conjunction with the public footpath signs on the ground.
There are also many cafes and places to eat in Ormskirk town centre on your way out or on your return and along the way there are benches where you may enjoy a picnic.
