The 18 Circular walks and 14 linear Link walks start at stations between Settle and Kirkby Stephen on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle line, and from Clapham on the Bentham line (to Morecambe). The map link opens an interactive map of the main walk route only - optional variations are shown in the guide book.
Each walk is graded for the effort required: EASY walks are up to 8 miles in length and may involve an overall ascent of 400 metres; MODERATE walks are from 8 to 10 miles long or include an ascent of between 400 and 500 metres; STRENUOUS walks are at least 10 miles long or include total ascent of more than 500 metres.
MOBILE USERS PLEASE NOTE: the Interactive online map should be used only as an AID to navigation - the geolocation tracking feature uses mapping which requires a good strong signal to download - which may be sometimes unavailable, especially in more remote locations. The Geolocation-tracking feature can be erratic at times, so please don't rely on it. This feature also tends to drain battery charge quicker when in constant use, so should be used sparingly. Walkers should use the Skyware Dales Rail Trails guide book or map and a compass for primary navigation.
