Walking In The
Yorkshire Dales To Contents
In my opinion the Yorkshire Dales provide
one of the best walking areas in the country covering a wide variety of
scenery and some isolated locations. I have included the walks which I
do on a regular basis together with a number of photographs. In particular
I would recommend a visit to the Ribblehead and Three Peaks area and Moorcock
Inn pages both of which make use of the excellent Settle Carlisle train
service and other transport links. Also see the Family
Cycle Trails pages

and the 3 Peaks - A selection of walks around Ribblehead
and the Three Peaks area all making use of the excellent Settle-Carlisle
Railway service. These include the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough,
Whernside and Great Knoutberry plus a few low level alternatives.
Station and the Moorcock Inn - A few walks in this isolated
area all starting or finishing at the Moorcock Inn. The area takes
in parts of upper Wensleydale, the upper Eden Valley and the fells
to each side all accessed from the Settle- Carlisle Railway line and
various bus services. Walks include Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang Edge,
Great Shunner Fell, Baugh Fell, Garsdale. OK, I know this is mostly

of outstanding natural beauty.
Valley - This includes
the Timble, Fewston and Thruscross area - Easy access from Leeds and

very busy area.

Slightly out of the Dales as such and close to Leeds and Bradford
with a good rail link.

area on it's own situated between the Three Peaks and the Lake District
