Otley Ringway Walk

37 km / 23 miles

N Yorks, W Yorks
The Otley Ringway was devised by Brian Watson. As the name suggests the walk is circular and follows a route around Otley and also Burley-in-Wharfedale, heading north to reach Denton and Askwith Moors. If you start at Menston the route goes vis Otley Chevin and down to Pool and in Pool it would go to past Lindley Wood Reservoir to Timble, then via Askwith Moors to Denton crossing the River Wharfe at Denton Bridge, up over Ilkley Moor and back to Menston.
From Ilkley almost to Pool it coincides with the Dales and Ebor Ways.
