nice walk some very sizable climbs

Nice easy 4mile walk.. just under. Started near the bridge in Richmond and followed the River Swale to Easby Abbey and St. Agnes Church. Crossed the bridge and followed the river back till we reached Richmond. Very peaceful, shaded walk most of the way round, good underfoot. Would love to see it as the seasons change.

Great walk, amazing views

Parked at Muker car park. £4.50 for 10 hrs. Walked up through the village and followed the stream upriver on the left side. Just before Keld turned right over the bridge, passing the waterfall. Decided to go left and follow the Pennine Way for a short distance. Well worth the view from the top. Turned back after lunch and followed the path back, down river, with the river to our right. Crossed the bridge back to Muker and the car park. Fabulous, peaceful walk, steep in places but nothing too strenuous.

Great walk with great views walking along side the river with some nice little waterfalls, would certainly recommend this one

Fabulous easy to follow route, fantastic views and great underfoot. Actually loved the second half unlike some others. The sweeping views down across the grouse mood towards Swaledale were stunning.

Absolutely loved this!!! In an attempt to get fitter we’ve started walking. This is no beginners or easy walk! It is however a nice walk to build up. It’s great seeing how much fitter you’ve become. A nice pleasant walk on the hillside and by the river was quite nice too. If you’re slightly worried you’ll struggle then I’d suggest the hillside there and back as it’s all road. Well a small little road that leads to a few houses so not much traffic if any. Dogs need to be on a lead as there’s lots of sheep and some cows too. Nice little cafe in Gunnerside that do lovely toasties! They take card payments in there too.

lovely walk. so many more waterfalls than expected. Rocks are slippy below falls so take care.

Great walk with tea shops at beginning, middle and end! Spectacular views and waterfalls.

We, including the dog, very much enjoyed this walk. Lovely scenery and the information about the mining activities etc. was a bonus. Would definitely recommend it.

Great hike but for those dog walks beware of the several fields of sheep. Dog lead required.

love this walk just not the cows and bull that decided to give chase.

A stunning walk with wonderful views and industrial archaeology at every turn. Personally, if I did this again I would turn around before the second ford gate waypoint and retrace my steps. The slog uphill and the descent to the end were an anticlimax compared to the first half of the walk.

Left Serin House, a lovely B&B in Danbe Wiske at 8:45. Hiked through and around fields and over narrow country lanes. Kept rendezvousing with C2C we had met at the White Swan Inn. Good trail vibes. Arrived at The Blue Bell Inn in time for lunch. Our shortest day.

really nice day, bit of everything, easy to follow paths and plenty of detours if you want to take them. Completed with a variety group age from 9 upwards!

Absolutely beautiful walk, lovely walk along the stream followed by stunning views all round. So peaceful, had a picnic stop halfway to take in the view. Easy trail to follow too.

Great walk with big views and no people �

This is a great walk if you like being high up on the moors with a bit of industrial archeology thrown in. You can of course shorten the walk (and still see nearly all of the industrial archeology) by making it into a linear walk and retracing your steps back before you reach the 'Second Ford Gate" waypoint.
