Pateley Bridge and Guise Cliff
This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.
The walk begins by going towards the hamlet of Bewerley before making one of a number of steep but short ascents through pastures. It goes through woodland by a small lake before emerging onto a lane, crossing a stream and rising sharply on another lane. Another steep pull-up follows before a drop into a beautiful valley and a climb out the other side.
You approach Yorke's Folly, two massive columns that look like part of a ruined church, and go onto open moorland on the edge of Guise Cliff, with the most extensive views of the valley and beyond.
A drop through woodland brings you to Guisecliff Tarn, very attractive in its setting, then down past cottages to a reservoir and the riverbank. An easy and tranquil walk on a well-made path leads back to Pateley Bridge.
