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!

Each walk is FREE to use, to follow and download
