Gargrave Walks

6 miles (9.5 km)

This circular walk explores the countryside and canals surrounding this popular village in the Yorkshire Dales. The route makes use of the Pennine Way and the towpath of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to create a 6 mile round walk. It's a fairly gentle route with little climbing and splendid views of the surrounding Yorkshire Dales hills. You can start and end the walk from the centre of the village which is accessible by train or bus.
The area around Gargrave is fantastic for walking and cycling. You could head to Barnoldswick by walking south along the canal or visit the splendid Malham Tarn Estate by heading north along the Pennine Way.
You can also enjoy walk along the River Aire by following the Airedale Way which passes through the village.
On our Skipton Canal Walk you can follow a lovely section of the Leeds and Liverpool to nearby Skipton.
