Jonathan and Mist with a copy of The Dales 30 book.

Each walk is FREE to use, to follow and download

There are over 500 individual walks on this website and they form the basis of the website; 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.

The walks form the basis for the website but we also offer the following services:

  • Self Guided Walking Holidays
