N Yorkshire

43 km / 27 miles
Trollers Trot was devised in 1985 as part of the West Yorkshire LDWA celebrations to mark their 10th anniversary. This tough challenge, with 3750 ft of ascent, starts at Bolton Abbey Car Park and visits Simons Seat, Trollers Ghyll, Burnsall, Linton Falls (Grassington), Winterburn Reservoir and Rylstone Church. It returns to Bolton Abbey over Rylestone Fell. A shorter version of the route is run as an annual challenge event on the first Saturday in March each year and continues to be an open anytime challenge event with a badge and certificate available from the Recorder.
