Why you should do this walk…

A 4 mile circular walk from Settle in the Yorkshire Dales in North Yorkshire. The highlights of this walk are the great views of Pen–y-ghent and Ingleborough, two of the three Yorkshire Peaks, great if you and your dog haven’t got time to walk up them right now – there’s always another day of course! The caves add intrigue to the walk and being so close to the Warrendale Knotts is awesome, but the best thing about this walk is how much fun your dog will have on the varied terrain and romping around the fields and grassy paths.

Dog friendly?…

The terrain is rugged in places, with some gradient but nothing to worry about. You will need to negotiate several gates, some steps plus one stile. It is the Dales, so expect to see some sheep but even so this walk offers lots of off-lead time so your well-behaved pooch can enjoy romping on the lush, green paths. There are public toilets in Settle.

    Be aware that “crossing the stone wall” involves a tall, ladder stile, which is an interesting experience with dogs who’ve never climbed such things. When we did this walk, the field beyond had cows in it, so take care.

    Thank you, we used this route yesterday. We really enjoyed the walk despite fog at the beginning. Looking forward to doing it again in clear weather.
    The instructions were clear. No need even to check the OS map. Nice even tracks throughout: no bogs, uneven ground, hummocks etc. Our dog is used to ladder stiles, so that was no problem, and it was fairly unusual for us to only have one to negotiate.

    I did this walk last weekend recently with my son and my labrador. It was a beautiful walk, and the instructions were very clear although we found it took longer than we had anticipated. Towards the end of the walk (Instruction 7) as we entered the rocky field we were confronted with a field full of cows and calf’s which made negotiating our way through this field difficult. On the whole a lovely walk which we would do again.
