Grassington and Linton Moor

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.

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 walk does not go all the way onto the higher ground but drops slowly onto another resurfaced track and 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. This walk is a shorter version of Walk 7759 and has much less height gain.
