Summary: The Dales High Way is an exhilarating and challenging 90 miles across the glorious high country of the Yorkshire Dales with over 13,900 ft of ascent. Walk this spectacular landscape from Saltaire to Appleby-in-Westmorland. Explore its rich history, geology and culture. Return with a breathtaking train ride along England's most beautiful railway. From Saltaire the route crosses the darkly mysterious Rombalds Moor, with its Stone Age rock art, and follows the dramatic limestone scars of Malhamdale. It meanders along the bank of the River Ribble and climbs the mighty Ingleborough. It skirts the flanks of Whernside and in a breathtaking six-mile ridge walk crosses the velvety folds of the Howgill Fells. It passes the isolated splendour of Sunbiggin Tarn before dropping into the lush green of the Eden valley to finish in Appleby. (Source: LDWA)
