Yoredale Way

163 km / 101 miles

Cumbria, N Yorks
One hundred miles in length-the Yoredale Way traces the River Ure from the point at which it joins the River Ouse, a few miles north of York, to its source 2,000 feet above sea level amongst the Pennine fells between Hawes and Kirkby Stephen. Between these two points the walker along the Way will pass through the heart of Yorkshire, along delightful riverside paths, through undulating parkland and along ancient drove roads before achieving his or her objective amongst the grandeur of the Pennines. As the route is followed, visits can be made to many interesting towns and villages, ruined castles and the remains of a splendid abbey. While on the journey through Wensleydale, opportunities will be taken to divert into some of those wonderful tiny valleys through which the mountain streams pass and invariably produce impressive waterfalls before making their way to the River Ure. This is a walk which will suit all tastes, the hardy long distance walker will no doubt accept the challenge and complete the walk in five days, maybe even four, but this should not deter the average walker. The paths are not difficult and the 'walk can be broken down into quite short distances and completed using cars and public transport. The exception is the Hawes to Kirkby Stephen secti6n where public transport is only available at weekends from April to October when Dales Rail provides a very useful service which calls at Garsdale and Kirkby Stephen with bus connections to and from Hawes. The Ure becomes the Ouse near to Linton on Ouse just north of York.
