Route Outline

A Yorkshire Dales walk which must be done in the second week of May to enjoy the spectacular display of wild flowers. It is a walk with quite astonishing beauty. The woods, once you arrive, are like something from Rupert or Enid Blyton - endless views under coppiced hazels and age old trees of bluebells, primroses, oxlips, cowslips, white anemone, violets and orchids. A genuinely amazing sight. There are a few heart-stirring climbs along the way but nothing that a few pauses won't cure. Ladder stiles proliferate.
