Summary: At approximately 100 miles long the Yoredale Way traces the River Ure from the point at which it joins the River Ouse, a few miles north of York, to its source in the Pennine fells between Hawes and Kirkby Stephen. The Walk not only features the river but also the Yoredale Series of lower Carboniferous rocks after which the walk is mamed. The route crosses classic walking country in Northern England, most significantly across the Vale of York and then up through Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. From York the Yoredale Way goes via Nether Poppleton, Beningbrough, Nun Monkton, Newton-on-Ouse, Youlton, Aldwark, Myton-on-Swale, Boroughbridge, Roecliffe, Newby Hall, Ripon, North Stainley, West Tanfield, Mickley, Grewelthorpe Wood, Masham, Low Ellington, Jervaulx Abbey, Cover Bridge, Middleham, Leyburn, Leyburn Shawl, Wensley, West Witton, Penhill, West Burton, Aysgarth Falls, Askrigg, Sedbusk, Hawes, Hardraw, Cotterdale, Abbotside Common, Hell Gill Bridge, Mallerstang and Wharton Hall to the finish in Kirkby Stephen.
