Buckden Pike

7 miles (12 km)

This circular walk climbs to the 702 metres (2,303ft) summit of Buckden Pike in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The walk starts in the parking area in the village of Buckden and follows a bridleway to the summit. From here there are wonderful views of Great Whernside, Yockenthwaite Moor and across the Yorkshire Dales. You then descend to Starbotton passing the war memorial to the Polish airmen who died when their Wellington Bomber crashed on Buckden Pike during a snowstorm in 1942. The descent follows the Walden Road with views of pretty becks and waterfalls on the way. At Starbotton you cross the River Wharfe and pick up the Dales Way for a lovely riverside section taking you back to Buckden. Look out for Kingfisher, Heron, and Dipper on this section of the walk.
