Map of the 79 mile (127km) Dales Way through the Yorkshire Dales between Ilkley and Bowness-on-Windermere. This booklet is included with the Cicerone guidebook and shows the full route on OS 1:25,000 maps. One of the most gentle multi-day walks in Britain, it passes through Grassington, Kettlewell, Dent, Sedbergh and Staveley.
- The walk is scenically at its best in Spring and Autumn (April-June and September-October), but is an all-year round walk for suitably equipped walkers.
- Ilkley, Grassington, Hawes, Sedbergh, Bowness-on-Windermere
- This is an ideal route for anyone wanted to attempt multi-day walking for the first time. There are no significant physical difficulties beyond the basic need to walk a certain distance each day.
- Must See
- Historic buildings, roads, bridges, etc. Landscape, flowers and wildlife. Bolton Abbey, Dent, Dales villages. The scenery is outstanding throughout, and a string of communities line the route but without detracting from the sense of freedom.
All the mapping you need to complete the Dales Way, a 79-mile long-distance route through the Yorkshire Dales, from Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere.
NOTE: An accompanying Cicerone guidebook – The Dales Way - describes the full route with lots of other practical and historical information. The accompanying guidebook includes a copy of this map booklet.
This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the Dales Way, along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend. It is conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or top of a rucksack and comes in a clear PVC sleeve.
The Dales Way links two of England's most celebrated national parks, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The waymarked route showcases the region's beautiful limestone landscapes and historic towns and villages as it passes through Wharfedale, Dentdale, Lonsdale and the Lakeland fringe, accompanying rivers great and small, crossing farmland – and just a little moorland, and following wandering winding lanes. Well served for accommodation and facilities, and with easy walking on riverside paths, it is one of the gentlest multi-day walks in Britain and therefore an ideal introduction to long-distance walking.
