Skipton is the perfect location for those who enjoy the great outdoors

The Dales is a vast landscape, and there are many stunning trails a little further afield. There are walks for all levels of fitness and agility - ranging from leisurely wanders to adventurous treks. We have included a few local walks here to get you started, along with links to local walking groups.

Further details are available from Skipton Tourist Information Centre in the Town Hall, tel: 01756 792809
