Why you should do this walk…

A 3.5 mile circular walk from the village of Reeth in the Yorkshire Dales. If you want a fairly short walk in the Dales, with just a few climbs and you (and your dog) don’t mind hopping over dry stone walls, then this one is for you. On this walk you will be rewarded with fantastic views of the Dales – Reeth is situated at the junction of Arkengarthdale and Swaledale. The beautiful village has a nice buzz, with plenty to see and do after your walk. If you have forgotten how beautiful the Dales can be, this walk will remind you.


Dog friendly?…

The walk has several steady climbs and descents throughout. You will need to negotiate several stone stiles (gaps in the dry stone walls) along the way – some of these are quite narrow and could be a challenge for wider people and dogs. There may well be sheep in some of the fields, especially early on, and also some cattle in one of the fields towards the end so take particular care with dogs. The multiple grass pastures and stone walls can be disorientating so the live GPS map on the iFootpath App will be your best navigation aid!

    Lovely walk for the Bank Holiday – the views were lovely and we explored an area we have not previously visited. Watch out for the cows and calves in some of the later fields!

    What a beautiful, beautiful walk. The scenery was breath-taking. Lottie and I walked it yesterday on a warm June day. There were only a few muddy patches. The cows and calves in the final (barn) field made me a little nervous, so I just picked up Lottie and ran for it 🙂 The Ivy tearoom in Reeth was lovely. We sat outside. Took about an hour and a half, with lots of pauses to read the direction sheet.

      Yes it’s very beautiful around Reeth and this is a nice little taster of what the area has to offer you and your pooch. Hope the cattle didn’t spoil the walk for you. Thanks for the feedback 🙂

    This walk was done lat winter after heavy rainfall which made the fields difficult to walk through. The highlight of the elk for pooch was swimming in the river.. Although I was sceptical of this as I saw a few rats hanging by the side of the embankment and couldn’t help think about lepto!! Directions not very clear after the river and the weather didn’t help, although friendly locals pointed us in the right direction. Would do this again in summer and its well worh a visit to the pub in the village- the landlord has a lab of his own and Millie was very appreciative of the roaring fire! Some stiles steep and difficult to get over especially when you have a heavy dog unwilling to jump!

    Very enjoyable walk and great views in some areas and we liked going into all the abandoned shelters but early in the walk the
    directions were actually left but on the direction sheet it was right

    Completed this walk today. Lovely route and dogs especially loved the beck!
    Two stiles which we found a tad diffult due to having big dogs who couldn’t jump up the wall and a big drop on other side.
    That aside they completed the walk and had a fab day 🙂
