A circular walk from Knaresborough, close to Harrogate in North Yorkshire. If your dog deserves an energetic romp, mostly off-lead, with some climbs and the added bonus of the opportunity of a swim in the quieter parts of the River Nidd, why not consider this walk? The Nidd Gorge is stunning and a magnet for walkers, while the pretty market town of Knaresborough has many dog-friendly places to pop in to for refreshments when you have finished. The route is mostly on grassy paths, tarmac lanes and cycle tracks but also includes some steep descents and climbs by the river, which may be very boggy and muddy after wet weather. You will need to negotiate several flights of steps and several stiles (all of which have gaps alongside that most dogs should fit through). There are public toilets at the car park in Knaresborough. Allow 3 hours.

Good day out with Family, it was very warm and sunny but there is wooded areas that offer shade. My brother’s dog loved it as plenty of chances for a swim in the river.
