Riverside Strolls

The Yorkshire Dales may not do lakes but certainly makes up for it with some lovely rivers. Contrasting the serene progress of the main rivers are the faster flowing feeder tributaries; here spectacular waterfalls hold sway in hidden valleys and open mountainside.

Walks in the secondary dales tend to be rougher and may include a return over higher ground but as long as the focus of the walk is a twinkling burn then it is worth it! The main dales usually offer easier walks – often little more than an afternoon stroll but regardless the rivers of the Wharfe, Swale, Ure, Nidd, Eden and Ribble are always captivating.
