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.

Exit the car park and turn left along Hebden Road. Cross the road using the zebra crossing and continue towards the centre of the town. Turn right into Main Street and walk up through the main shopping centre to reach the Town Hall. Turn right into Low Lane and take High Lane which is the first left and leads to Hebden. Follow this walled track for about 250 metres and turn left onto a signed path (grid ref. SE006641). The path crosses several fields to reach a path junction in 400 metres (grid ref. SE009640). Bear right here and continue past the ruins of Wise House to reach a junction of paths just before Garnshaw House (grid ref. SE017637).

Turn right and follow the path down to the B6265 (grid ref. SE016631). Cross the road with care and take the signed path across fields to pass Half Way House Farm. Continue on this path down to the banks of the River Wharfe (grid ref. SE007631). Turn upstream, with the River Wharfe on your left, following the Dales Way. Across the river is the attractive Linton Parish Church. Continue along the Dales Way to reach Linton Falls (grid ref. SE 0016330. Reaching Linton Falls turn right up Sedber Lane back to the start.
