Help connect Grassington

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Grassington’s Slow Ways.

Given it was November, the light ran out between Addingham and Ilkley having set off around 11, but even so the paths were easy to follow by headlamp....

For anyone wanting an easy-to-follow option which bypasses the fields, I’m adding a photo showing the line of an excellent alternative, which follows a lovely walled grassy lane all the way up to the moor, where a very obvious path takes you uphill to rejoin the main Dales Way....

I have only done half this route, the bit from Cracoe to Grassington and it's a lovely route, on proper tracks some of the time and very easy to follow. I only had one difficulty, I couldn't open the farm gate near the beginning of the walk in Cracoe, I had to climb over it. It has some rope looped round a gate post which wouldn't come free....

Walk this route

Much easier from Grassington to Kettlewell than vice versa as the footpath into Grassington (around the farm) can become a bit vague. Other than that a great route of well used footpaths & well signed along the Dales Way...

It’s a lovely walk alongside the river, with only limited ascent (but some slippery paths) around Bolton Abbey, and lots of lovely bridges to look at. Toilets and a cafe available in Bolton Abbey grounds....

Walk this route

Nice route over the moors and great views, but lots of stiles, some with the added complication of a gate meant this was quite challenging, even for someone who is relatively young and fit. Quite exposed at the top....

The first half of the walk as far as Bolton Abbey is enjoyable, however has a reasonable amount of road walking or remains on footpaths close to busy roads which spoils the enjoyment somewhat....

Upon leaving Grassington, it can be a little tricky to find the correct route onto the moor as you bypass a dairy farm - and route finding on the moor may be tricky if visibility is poor After a relatively steep descent and a short bit of walking on the road, the path diverts over multiple small fields of sheep - there are multiple (10+) small squeeze gap stiles with swing gates which can be tricky if you are carrying a large rucksack or have tired legs!...
