A different part of the country to our usual Peak District Walks. This walk is in The Yorkshire Dales National Park.
A full day walk a part of a small group of usually no more than six people plus your guide to reach the summits of Swarth Fell (681m), Wild Boar Fell (708m) and Little Fell (559m). These are in the part of Cumbria that has recently become part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
We meet at Kirkby Stephen railway station and take the train to the little village of Garsdale, then walk back over beautiful and wild open moorland leading on the the three hills. If it's a clear day we will be able to enjoy magnificent views at the begining of the walk back toward Pen-y-Ghent, then as we get onto Swarth Fell and Wild Boar Fell, down the Eden Valley and across to Mallerstang Edge.
This is a hilly walk of about 12.5 miles/20km with approx 570 metres of ascent over terrain that can be rough in places.
The price is £42 per person including the train fare to Garsdale for this walk. Please book and pay below.
We meet at 8:35am at Kirkby Stephen railway station (Post Code CA17 4LE) to be ready to catch the 8:47am train to Garsdale. Please note that the railway station is a couple of miles away from the village of Kirkby Stephen.
If you would like to stay locally the night before or after this walk, the villages of Kirkby Stephen or Ravenstonedale are nearby.
