Yorkshire Dales Walk
Garnshaw House & Linton Falls from Grassington
Walk Route Description
This short Yorkshire Dales walk from Grassington starts from the National Park Centre (grid ref. SE002637) where there is a large pay and display car park. The route explores typical countryside of the area east of the town and follows a short section of the River Wharfe to visit the Linton Falls.
