Walks in Dentdale

Dentdale offers some of the finest walking in the Yorkshire Dales. Whether a pleasant riverside ramble or a challenging ascent of one of the four fells over 2000 feet, Dentdale has something for walkers of all age, agility or preference.
Here you can find links to 20 walks throughout the dale. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have problems with any of the links or would like to suggest walks featured on other websites.
Please follow the Countryside Code when out walking in Dentdale or anywhere else, especially:
Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home.
Keep dogs under effective control.
OS maps and the handy, pocket-sized Yellow Walk Map ‘Around & About Dent’ covering much of Dentdale (scale 1:16000 or four inches to the mile) can be purchased at Dent Stores (along with homemade cakes and treats as well as freshly baked savouries, all ideal for a mid-walk break).
Remember, you can make use of the Western Dales bus service to and from Dent Station to Sedbergh, which runs along the dale on a Saturday, to complete some of the one-way walks.
