Walk Information
The route from Grassington to the West Coast is 100 miles of fine country walking. It is set out to be completed in 7 days, but because there are more places to stay it can be extended to as many as 12 days.

This walk takes in a lot of the most popular natural features in the Yorkshire Dales, but heads out into some really wonderful wild places as well. The crowning glory is the brilliant light that always seems to shine out of the wide open sea and sand of Morecambe Bay.
