Head back into Wensleydale on your final day, walking through vibrant hay meadows before climbing gently to the lovely open heather moorlands of Apedale. Drop down through lush fields and pass the ruins of the medieval Bolton Castle before arriving back at the wonderful Aysgarth Falls. Stop here for one last look before following quiet country lanes back into Aysgarth, where you can enjoy one final night in this Yorkshire idyll. 


If you've been unfortunate with the poor weather/visibility today or if your legs are a little weary, then you can opt to take an alternative rewarding (yet still challening) route over Greets Hill. It's around 2 kilometres shorter than the standard Apedale route to Dent's Houses - which is (give or take) 1 to 1.5 hours less of walking.

There are a few stretches where you must walk on the road as there is no pavement or verge. Walk on the right side facing the oncoming traffic.

There may be sections where you will be walking through fields containing livestock.  Be vigilant and respectful of all animals.

For any river crossing - there are always normally stepping stones or an obvious way to cross - be careful when crossing as it can be very slippery.

The paths can sometimes be tricky to follow in open featureless sections, especially in very bad weather (especially fog). Make sure to stay on the correct trail by concentrating carefully on your GPS tracks and maps.


If you wish to carry a hardcopy map, we would recommend buying the OS Explorer OL30 Map - Yorkshire Dales Northern & Central Area. Alternatively, you may wish to print the daily maps directly from our app.

Sturdy hiking boots, warm clothes, and a waterproof/wind-break layer are all required. The weather can change quickly in the Dales so be sure to take all equipment even if the weather looks okay. Walking poles will be a big advantage on some of these ascents and descents.

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, it might be beneficial to bring a power bank.

A large section of the walk today between Grinton and Castle Bolton there are no stops for food or drink - please always ensure you have plenty of water and emergency food (energy bars/trail mix) with you at all times. Please also ensure you check in advance of  Pubs/cafes and shops opening hours on the day you are due to walk, in Yorkshire opening hours are varied and they can be closed on certain days of the week (walking post-Covid19 lockdown restrictions means their opening hours could be even more erratic, so please check to avoid disappointment).
