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.

Seasons

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.

Centres

Ilkley, Grassington, Hawes, Sedbergh, Bowness-on-Windermere

Difficulty

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.
