The ‘Dales 30’ are the 30 mountains within the Yorkshire Dales National Park over 2,000 feet high. They offer a fine alternative to the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.
The ‘Dales 30’ weekender is based in Hawes with 4 of the ‘Dales 30 ‘ mountains to complete.
Saturday. Great Shunner Fell & Lovely Seat
Sunday. Dodd Fell Hill & Wether Hill
June 15th and 16th
Hawes is the first of a series of Weekenders which explore the ‘Dales 30’ mountains. Come and join us.
Friday Night: Meet Jonathan and the other ‘weekenders’ in one of the pubs in Hawes for a pre walk drink.
Saturday: Start 9.30. From Hawes we will cross the River Ure to Hardraw. The long but gradual climb to Great Shunner Fell is via the Pennine Way. From the summit cross to the rougher slopes of Lovely Seat via Buttertubs Pass. The return is over featureless moorland but we may have time to visit Hardraw Force after descending.
Evening Meal will be in Hawes.
Sunday: Start 9.30. Follow the good path initially south towards Dodd Fell Hill. Approaching the summit leave the path and cross the trackless land past it and down towards the Cam Road. Wether Fell is a lovely mountain with a glorious descent to finish the day on the approach to Hawes.
The day will finish by 3.30.
The ‘Dales 30’ weekender is primarily for those who want to take up or continue the ‘Dales 30’ challenge. Choosing these particular walks maybe because of their remoteness and in places tricky navigation or just because it is nice to join a party who are equally enthused about walking in the less popular areas of the Yorkshire Dales.
A good level of fitness is needed.
Hawes is a small market town in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales
There is a large choice of hotels, pubs and guest houses in Hawes.
However for a luxurious stay why not try the excellent Simonstone Hall Hotel
Alternatively the Youth Hostel and Camping Barn are a good alternative.
