Walk Information

In the Yorkshire Dales lies the Nidderdale Way, a 53-mile circular walk that encompasses a landscape unchanged in millennia, and outstanding in its natural beauty. Centred on the picturesque town of Pateley Bridge, the Nidderdale Way offers a fabulous walking holiday.

The Nidderdale Way is situated within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), considered one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK. The AONB consists of around 233 sq miles (603 sq km) of the Yorkshire Dales – part of the UK’s system of national parks and nature reserves. The AONB is a protected area, free from unwanted development and unspoilt for future generations.

The Nidderdale AONB has been designated precisely because of its stunning views and contrasting landscapes, wild moorland and wildlife, historical sites and picturesque villages.

The 53 miles of the Nidderdale Way are contained almost totally within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with only the town of Ripley to the east not part of the AONB. It meanders through the Upper, Middle and Lower Valleys of the Nidd.
