General information

Following on from the success of our 2019 walk from Malham, this is another 9-10 mile circular walk through this breathtaking limestone country including Weets Top, Gordale Scar and Malham Cove.

We start by heading south from Malham along the Airedale Way to Airton. This is a relatively flat 3 miles before we start to head northeast for the 3.25 mile climb to Weets Top (Ascent 797ft/242m). This is more of a gentle steady climb than a lung-buster and Weets Top is the highest point on this walk.

We then head west for 2 miles following the Dales High Way, passing the entrance to Gordale Scar before reaching Malham Cove which we cross from right to left before following the path back to Malham where we can stop for tea and cake. Total ascent 1,352ft/414m.

Equipment: walking boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, warm clothing. Trekking pole(s) recommended if normally used.

To avoid the usual congestion in the car park will we start this walk at 10.00am

Please note: Dogs are not allowed on this walk.
