Due to the overall size of Wharfedale   I have  split the area into two sections Upper Wharfedale and Lower Wharfedale (here), the dividing line being just north of Grassington. The area of Ilkley Moor  is included on a separate page.

The area includes Grassington and Bolton Abbey  both of which can get very busy but some surprisingly under walked areas can be found particular on the access areas each side of Bolton Abbey.

Map reading is essential for these walks. The  relevant map is OS Outdoor Leisure 2 Southern & Western areas (double sided map)

There are several bus services in Wharfedale, including a daily hourly service between Skipton and Grassington, with some buses continuing to Buckden. On Mondays to Saturdays there is a two-hourly service from Ilkley to Grassington. On Sundays, and some Tuesdays and Saturdays in summer, Dalesbus services run from West Yorkshire via Wharfedale to Hawes. See www.dalesbus.org for details.
