From the author...

Where2Walk presents the best walks in the Yorkshire Dales, the best walks in the North York Moors , the best walks in the Lake District and where best to stay to fully enjoy them.

There are over 500 individual walks on this website and I have walked each one over the last 10 years, some were familiar to me, others not.  As well as planning what I believe is the best route I have taken the photographs, designed the maps,written the description and even discovered the joys of plotting a GPS route! It has been a real labour of love.

Each walk is FREE to use, to follow and download

    Walking with Mist

    My summer (so far) in pictures 13 July 2016

    Mist is now 6 and as energetic as ever. She has thickened a little in girth since her early days (probably due to stealing packed lunches on walks) and enjoys resting at any stops. However there is no sign of slowing, she still walks double any human (at least) on any given day. Loves it.
