Yorkshire Dales

Description

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a pretty area for walking. The upland parts consist of pastures separated by dry-stone walls and grazed by sheep and cattle. Elsewhere, you will find heather moorland. The Yorkshire Dales belong to the Pennines. A great number of Long Distance Trails traverse this area, including the Coast to Coast Walk, the Pennine Way and the Dales Way.

Hike Reports

  • Yorkshire Three Peaks

  • overseasophie March 2011
  • From Hutten-le-Hole in North Yorkshire. This was harder than expected because of marshy ground and rocky descents, but we really enjoyed in nonetheless. Would recommend starting early as we began at around 9.30 and finished just after dusk.
