The Yorkshire Dales combine a wild limestone landscape of high rolling moorland gouged by dramatic caves and cascading waterfalls with peaceful farmland carpeted in wildflowers and dotted with ruined abbeys, ancient stone walls and barns, and timeless villages waiting to be discovered.
The 40 moderate walks in this collection from award winning publisher Pocket Mountains highlight the very best the area has to offer
Includes adventures in Wharfedale, Malhamdale, Nidderdale, Ribblesdale, Wensleydale, Swaledale and Dentdale.
Many routes make use of sections of established long-distance trails such as the Pennine Way and the Dales Way.
Walking varies from delightful springy turf to complex limestone pavements and scars, with heather and rough moorland.
At the top of the pile is a cap of millstone grit, emerging only on the highest peaks. Ingleboroug
One of Yorkshire’s ‘Three Peaks’, it is arguably the most distinctive of the higher summits and it provides a vivid geological insight into the Dales.
