Route Outline

A straightfoward ramble with little climbing, but one which, given that the Leeds conurbation starts just a couple of miles down the road, is an eye-opener. Peaceful grass meadows and arable and stock fields abound; there is a delightful walk through deciduous woods, as well as the charm of Eccup reservoir; and there are the many Red Kites to be spotted.
