Dales Way

78 miles (126 km)

This wonderful walk takes you through the fabulous Yorkshire Dales and on into Cumbria and the spectacular Lake District.
There are several wonderful waterside stretches to enjoy starting with the River Wharfe at Ilkley before runs along the Rivers Dee and Lune soon follow. A pleasant stroll along the River Kent takes you into the Lake District National Park and then onto the finish point at Bowness.
Highlights on the route include the spectacular Linton Falls, the beautiful Burnsall to Grassington section through Wharfedale and the wonderful Bolton Abbey.
