If you want to scale the heights or prefer a gentle stroll through fields and footpaths then the Yorkshire Dales has the lot. The surrounding dales (Wensleydale  , Coverdale , Swaledale  , Wharfedale) are full of dramatic scenery from moorland up on the fell tops down to rich pastures, rivers, streams, waterfalls and woodland.
