"Yorkshire Dales Walks" has been through many editions and is now a very polished product in terms of both content and presentation. My wife and I run a B&B in the Dales and this book is the most-borrowed in our collection of walking guides. Guests like the combination of clear OS mapping, relevant photos, and accurate no-nonsense instructions. One could quibble about the routes selected, but they cover a wide variety of landscapes over a large geographical area and are ideal as an introduction for new or infrequent visitors to the Dales. Personally, I would have preferred a few more lengthy and demanding routes, but there we go.

Did 3 walks from this book last week whilst in Yorkshire Dales. Maps are clear using OS 1:25000 scale and directions also good. Wouldn't go just on the book though so always advise taking the appropriate OS map and a compass.
Much better selection of walks than the AA 50 walks if you're an experienced walker and prefer a decent length.

We'd not been to Yorkshire before, so chose this book which has short and long walks all around the Dales, we selected 4 of them near where we were staying and look forward to visiting again to do a few more in other areas. The book gives very precise directions and has a small map for each walk. Also gives an idea of length of time each takes, which happened to be pretty accurate for our own pace. So, very pleased with purchase and would happily buy others from the same series.

Just enough information - without too much. Clear, well illustrated. Handy size, lightweight and weather resistant - a useful bonus. I liked the way the walks were arranged in order of length and were easy to look up. The routes were well planned to give maximum interest. The one disadvantage was that the walks were some distance apart, requiring significant travel be car. I would have loved a book in exactly the same format but which was based on a smaller area eg a South West Dales Pathfinder. Perhaps the publishers could consider say 4 such books each dealing with a different part of the Dales? There are plenty more good walks to focus on.

A very useful wee book. Lots of great ideas for walks of varying lengths and difficulty. The maps are OS so are fine, although I'd also take a full size OS map. The problem with the cropped map extracts, just showing the route, is that you don't have a map of the immediate surrounding area which I find useful for navigation as well as my own curiousity! The route descriptions aren't perfect and occasionally require a little bit of imagination and map reading experience to find your way! However, overall highly recommended.

The Yorkshire Dales are a fabulous place for a walking holiday. This book has easy to follow instructions for walks of varying levels of difficulty. Really helpful have info such as look for the arrows on the barn or the ruined farmhouse.
