Dales Fells Horseshoe

552 km / 343 miles

Cumbria, N Yorks
The Dales Fells Horseshoe is a long distance walk devised by John Tew covering 343 miles and almost 60,000ft of climb throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including areas formerly in Westmorland, now part of Cumbria. On its intricate and tortuous route you will visit the summit of all the 38 Yorkshire Dales fells over 600 metres (2000ft) and see the finest valley and river scenery. Every step of the way is worthwhile and there is very little road walking. You will have enough time to appreciate the many features of interest en route. The average day is just over 14 miles with 700 metres (2300ft) of climbing. The route guide Includes detailed route descriptions covering 24 day walks. Alternatively the walk may be divided into the Three Circular Routes using a couple of short links, each circular route taking 8 or 9 days. The Northern (100 miles), Eastern (123 miles) and Western (134 miles) Circular Routes are described in the final chapter, and require two short links. The links, each used in both directions, are shown on separate maps on the LDWA site.

The route guide in PDF format Includes detailed route descriptions, outline maps, peak lists and background information and can be downloaded free from the link below under Downloads.
