Trans-Dales Trail - 2

Durham, N Yorkshire

97 km / 60 miles
From Greta Bridge in Teesdale in County Durham, just off the A66 trans-Pennine road, near Barnard Castle, the trail heads south across remote countryside, forest, and moor into Arkengarthdale and Swaledale, then up onto Oxnop Scar and over into Wensleydale, on past Semer Water and over Stake Moss into Wharfedale and the Dales Way. Crossing into Littondale, the Trail climbs Yew Cogar Scar then descends into Malham, via the Cove. With the hills now behind, the River Aire is followed to Airton, then on to Gargrave via Bell Busk. A leisurely ramble along the canal bank brings you into Skipton.
