Otley Chevin Country Park
Enjoy cycling and walking trails in this super country park near Leeds. For walkers there are several self guided walking trails while cyclists can enjoy the many bridleways that run through the park. Otley Chevin rises to a height of 280m above sea level, offering fabulous views of the Wharfe Valley and town of Otley below. The park consists of woodland, heathland, meadowland and rocky outcrops. There is also an excellent visitor centre and cafe.
This circular walk takes you through the woodland of Chevin Forest Park before climbing to the popular Suprise View. It's a wonderful spot with fine views to Lower Wharfedale, Almscliffe Crag and the Kilburn White Horse.
If you would like to continue your walk then the Ebor Way and a link to the Dales Way run right through the park.
In the town you could try our Otley River Walk which take you through some of the riverside parks and nature reserves located on the River Wharfe.
Just to the north east of Otley you will find the pretty Lindley Wood Reservoir. There are nice footpaths along the River Washburn and the peaceful Lindley Wood to enjoy here.
