Settle Loop Wheel Friendly Walk
The Settle Loop is a well established route which was designed originally for cyclists and horse riders. If using an All Terrain Wheelchair (ATW) make sure that you have sufficient power to complete the 10 miles circular route, which includes a steep climb and rugged terrain in places. Avoid the route after heavy rainfall as at least one section floods and becomes potentially impassable.
The route wanders through the Limestone uplands and the scenery is magnificent. You will see glimpses of Malham Tarn and my mountain – Pen-y-ghent.
A well-earned pint can be savoured in The Lion Inn, Settle. The bar and restaurant is wheelchair friendly, though there are no wheelchair accessible toilets. The Craven Arms, Giggleswick is also wheelchair accessible (wheelchair accessible toilets available).
For the cream tea lovers, The Watershed Mill, Settle is worth a visit. A great place for retail therapy and all wheelchair accessible.
