Many of Yorkshire's half a million acres are over 600 metres, peaking at more than 700 metres above sea level. These are wild, bleak and barren places, commanding heights of peat moor and limestone crag, windswept, inspiring and dramatic. But for all these glorious uplands it's the dales - the valleys - which truly catch the imagination. As Cumbria has its Lake District, and Derbyshire its Peak District, so Yorkshire is justifiably famous for its 'valley district'; The Yorkshire Dales. We can't guarantee the warmth of the sun, but we can just about cast-iron guarantee the warmth of the welcome to anyone who's come to enjoy our beautiful dales. To those of us lucky enough to live here, it's simply God's Own Country, and we enjoy talking about it as much as we enjoy walking it and sharing it. If you are a stranger in the Dales, you won't stay that way for long. All 40 walking routes include: walking route summary, ratings for Effort Time Distance Ascents/Descents ! Refreshments and Vertigo risk, fully detailed walk description including frequent timings to aid navigation and check your progress, GPS waypoints at every key point on every route, full colour 1:40,000 scale Ordnance Survey licenced mapping for each route, short walk and stroll alternatives.
