Airedale Way

N Yorkshire, W Yorkshire

79 km / 49 miles
A natural route from Leeds to the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, by following as far as possible paths by the River Aire and, in spite of passing through such small industrial towns as Shipley, Bingley and Keighley, is very largely rural. There are connections at Shipley with the Dales Way link route from Bradford and at Gargrave and Malham with the Pennine Way National Trail.
