We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

  1. Complete the survey training.

This route does not currently work. A long section over the moor is overgrown and the path is not visible. We crossed between Ellarcarr Pike and Denton, following Smithy Lane and Badger Gate (not Badger High Gate.. and it's labelled on Open Street Map but not OS Maps).

I'll be sharing the route we took and enjoyed as an additional route option, but someone who knows the area well will have additional route options to suggest.. likely making use of the "Ilkley - Harrogate link"!.
