Trans-Dales Trail - 1

97 km / 60 miles

N Yorks
A broadly west to east route crossing Ribblesdale, Littondale, Wharfedale and Nidderdale, followed by opportunities to visit the rock formations at Brimham Rocks, the historic grandeur of Fountains Abbey, and the valley of the River Skell. The Trail passes through some of the best Yorkshire Dales scenery, visits some delightful locations and uses some ancient green lanes, tracks, and paths that appear to be rarely walked. The route crosses Ingleborough,Old Cote Moor between Littondale and Kettlewell into Wharfedale and the Dales Way, follows Nidderdale down to Pateley Bridge, and visits Brimham Rocks, the Abbey and Studley Royal and finishes on the steps of Ripon Cathedral. The walk start at Ingleton with bus links with Lancaster and elsewhere and the finish at Ripon has bus links to Harrogate, York, Leeds and elsewhere
