Linton - Sicklinghall - Linton

The walk begins in Linton, a picturesque village in Lower Wharfedale, a highly desirable place to live with many exclusive properties. The route starts on a quiet country lane which leads to the elegant Wood Hall Hotel, although the walk diverts into woodland shortly before the entrance. Along the lane there are some good views of the scenery, particularly towards the village of Collingham. The route then follows a combination of farmland and woodland to the charming village of Sicklinghall, where there are a number of old cottages and a village pub if lunch or a drink is desired. Alternatively there are a number of conveniently located benches to stop and enjoy the scenery and atmosphere of the village. The route follows the road out of the village and goes over farmland to return to your starting point. There is also a pub in Linton which would make for an ideal place for a meal or drinks at the end of the walk.

This is a very dog friendly walk. It is well signposted and alternative parking is available by the river, just outside Collingham. Walk over the bridge and turn left along the signposted public footpath and join the walk at Trip Lane (Waymark 16 on the route instructions). The Scotts Arms in Sicklinghall is a brilliant place for a meal and a drink. Highly recommended! We did this walk in perfect early spring conditions on 20/3/2015

Actually, the total distance of road is one mile, if you don't count Trip Lane (Ebor Way) at the start which is a dead end and therefore has very little traffic. Adrian (Admin)

Very disappointed with this walk which we did yesterday. For us, a dog friendly walk is one which does not involve long periods walking along roads on the lead. This walk involved at least a couple of miles of road walking, part of which, the road out of Sicklinghall, was on a narrow road with no pavement or even verge and included several blind bends , on one of which I was nearly hit by a car travelling at speed. This was not, as indicated, a quiet road and was totally unsuitable for walking along. This was our first walk since joining Walkingworld and I hope this will not be typical of the walks on offer.

Thank's for a good family dog friendly walk Sean. Done today with young child in rucksack (20 months) and dog. I agree with Nicolle regarding the tough to open dropping gate when leaving Linton Spring farm on the path, which the farmer has rerouted 200m around the side of a cropped field. There is a stile here but the farmer had unfortunately topped it with barbed wire when he did his reroute - not nice. We extended the walk slightly by including a short loop at the start by the River Wharfe North of Linton Bridge (Posh properties along there!) to join Trip Lane at Waymark 16 and then turning left to follow your exact route. We parked in the spacious village Hall car park just north of the pub in Linton. They ask for £1 to be posted through the secure letterbox, which we were happy to give. Thank's again Sean for a nice walk, Phil, Judy, Andy, Sarah, little Amie and Treacle (WW Contributor Pickering, North Yorks)

Great walk - farmyard could have been easier to negotiate - last gate really hard to open - other than that, really well signposted - hundreds of poppies in the fields.

Extended the walk to 14K by going on to Spofforth. Easy walking and very, very muddy, but what do you expect in mid-February! Extremely enjoyable afternoon with lots of clear skies. Took just under 3 hours.
