The route begins in Longton and ends at the source of the Ribble at Gayle Moor near Ribblehead, it is around 73 miles in length.
The route passes through a variety of landscapes including tidal marsh, open moorland and limestone gorges. It begins to the south of the Ribble estuary, the route then runs through Preston and on to the historic town of Clitheroe. Next it heads up into the Pennines to reach its source on remote Cam Fell.
