Wild Yorkshire Way River Swale Alternative

N Yorkshire

18 km / 11 miles
The great Wainwright is to be thanked for this beautiful low lever riverside alternative, as it is his recommended low-level route on his famous Coast to Coast Walk. Purists will probably have already done the C2C, so this alternative is recommended for a different view of beautiful Swaledale. Both routes meet at Reeth, where there's ample accommodation and refreshments.
