Wild Yorkshire Way River Ure Alternative

N Yorkshire

29 km / 18 miles
The wild main route from West Burton to Masham involves a night out in the hills, or a large detour to Kettlewell. It's also very boggy, and a nightmare in bad weather. This long River Ure alternative is a pleasant riverside ramble, which can be split at Middleham if desired, and it rejoins the main route at the famous brewery town of Masham
