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.

Loved this walk even on an overcast day. Excellent instructions - very accurate! Thanks.

We walked this route a few days ago and it was our first using the iFootpath App for Android. It was easy to follow the instructions although I would suggest that you keep a count of the stiles you climb after you've passed the very nice pub. You can lose track even if you didn't stop for a pint. Looking forward to trying another route.
