Whilst most walks from Grassington explore the ground to the east of the village, this walk is on the other side of the Wharfe, a vast area of moorland with old mine tracks, many resurfaced making for easy walking. In fact there is only one stile on this entire walk, which may be something of a record. The walk begins by dropping from the visitor centre, crossing the Wharfe by Linton Falls and then following the river for a short while before crossing by field-paths to Threshfield, where the moorland paths are picked up. The ground is high here but the ascent has been steady if relentless; the views are extensive in all directions and height is maintained for some time. The route drops slowly onto another resurfaced track and then to bridleways leading to Linton and a short road section, which is left by the stile. A further path leads back to the bridge by the falls and the climb up to the visitor centre.
