The Dales Way
A 78 mile long walk from Ilkley to Bowness.
The Dales Way mainly follows attractive dales through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Howgill Fells and the south-eastern part of the Lake District. From Ilkley it heads along Wharfedale passing Bolton Abbey, the Strid, Grassington and Buckden before crossing Cam Fell and the Pennine Way National Trail to descend to Dentdale. From here, the River Dee is followed to Sedbergh, then the Lune to the Crook of Lune. The Way crosses farmland to reach Burneside and the River Kent, which is traced for several miles before the path branches off to the finish.
There are three Dales Way Link routes from cities nearby: from Leeds (Leeds - Dales Way, 19 miles, on OS maps) and Bradford/Shipley (Shipley - Dales Way, 8 miles, on OS maps), also now with a Bradford - Shipley link, 3 miles, and from Harrogate (Harrogate - Dales Way, 20 miles)
Dales High Way
An exhilarating and challenging 90 miles across the glorious high country of the Yorkshire Dales with over 13,900 ft of ascent. Walk this spectacular landscape from Saltaire to Appleby-in-Westmorland. Explore its rich history, geology and culture. Return with a breathtaking train ride along England's most beautiful railway.

From Saltaire the route crosses the darkly mysterious Rombalds Moor, with its Stone Age rock art, and follows the dramatic limestone scars of Malhamdale. It meanders along the bank of the River Ribble and climbs the mighty Ingleborough. It skirts the flanks of Whernside and in a breathtaking six-mile ridge walk crosses the velvety folds of the Howgill Fells. It passes the isolated splendour of Sunbiggin Tarn before dropping into the lush green of the Eden valley to finish in Appleby.
