Getting There

A circular walk from the village of Grassington in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire. If you're after a fairly level Dales walk by a river, through fields and meadows, with beautiful views and also the opportunity to stop off at dog-friendly places then this could be the walk for you. The terrain is medium difficulty, mostly grassy paths and lanes with gentle to moderate gradients. Some sections of the route can be very muddy after periods of rain and in winter. You will be crossing many grass pastures that are likely to contain a mixture of sheep and cattle. There is a small amount of road walking in Hebden. You will need to negotiate some steps and gates and there are several stiles along the route in the form of gaps within the dry-stone wall. Most of these should be suitable for agile dogs to negotiate, but there are a couple where dogs may need a hand. There are public toilets in the car park at the start of the walk. Allow 2.5 hours.

Grassington is a small market town in the Craven District of North Yorkshire, about 8 miles north-east of Bolton Abbey. The walk starts and finishes from the National Park Centre car park on the main B6265, which costs £4.50 for the day (as of Jun 2017). Approximate post code BD23 5LB.

really easy flat walk along the beck to the River Hull. A lock gate provides a crossing point at the top. The path is good all along with only a few muddy spots if the weather has been very wet! Ducks and moor hens can be seen on the water, so its great for small children.

First to Review

Lovely walk even on a very hot day the river was a welcome stop so the dogs could cool down. A very welcome stop half way in Hebdon then onwards to Grassington. First time using the app for iOS and we are very impressed we particularly like the real time mapping
