This circular walk in the Yorkshire Dales National Park starts in the pretty village of Grassington and visits Linton Falls, Kilnsey Crag and Conistone Dib.
If you’ve never visited Grassington, start planning your trip now. The narrow streets of this beautiful stone village in Upper Wharefdale are packed with pubs, cafes and shops – making it an ideal location for walkers planning to explore the Dales on foot.
The impressive cascades of Linton Falls lie to the south of the village, and as you follow this route north you’ll begin to appreciate the area’s stunning limestone scenery at Kilnsey Crag and the narrow gorge of Conistone Dib. Not to be confused with Coniston in the Lake District, Conistone village is a lovely place to stroll through, with the fast-flowing waters of the River Wharfe a regular companion for much of this beautiful route.
If you want to add some variety to your walk then explore trees and wildlife of Grass Wood Nature Reserve – the largest area of broadleaved woodland in the Dales – on your return journey to Grassington.
This route was voted 61st in a 2017 ITV poll to find Britain’s Favourite Walk.
TOG VERDICT: A hell of a lot of Dales landscape packed into one relatively short circular route. Grassington is a wonderful place for walkers.
