Wild Yorkshire Way Upper Derwent Valley Alternative

S Yorkshire

13 km / 8 miles
The Upper Derwent Valley alternative is still a wild and remote route, with few signs of civilisation apart from the reservoirs, but the route finding is easier and the paths are infinitely better. There is a price to pay, as the route descends into the valley and climbs out again to rejoin the main route at Loftshaw Clough Head, but in bad weather this is the recommended route
