This book showcases 20 circular walks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between 6 and 11 miles (10 and 17 kilometres) in length, suitable for hill walkers of all abilities.
The routes are split into three geographical areas – south, east, and north – and include walks to the Dales’ most regarded beauty spots, such as Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Brimham Rocks and Hardraw Force, as well as the trio of sought-after peaks; Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside.
The author of this guidebook, Bernard Newman, is a freelance outdoor writer and photographer, and former editor of the internationally acclaimed Mountain magazine. A Yorkshire Dales local and graduate geologist, in his route descriptions he explores the incredible geology that has created the breathtaking scenery on show in the Dales.
Each route in this guide is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, navigation information, refreshment stops and is plotted on clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 mapping.
