Yorkshire Dales

Yorkshire Dales

This is yet another area of mountain country I haven’t visited and one that seems to be somwhat ‘undiscovered’. It has a good range of peaks and a lot of variety and, importantly, doesn’t have the bucket-list-disneyfication of much of the other mountain country/ies in England and Wales.

It is softer, more rolling, country than some other mountain country but that doesn’t make it any less challenging. Indeed, there are many Mountain Leaders who struggle to do a day any longer than five hours and who cannot find their way around high, open, ground. The physical and mental challenges of travelling across this country should not be underestimated.

The only down-side is a lot of obstructions in the form of walls and fences on the Open Access. However, the country more than makes up for that in what it has to offer with plenty of summits and plenty of remote country. It also has the advantage of the Penine Way running through and parts of the Way have been incorporated into some of the Indicative Only GPX routes below.

I’ve tried to cover all of the summits across the QMD routes below. The country has been split into the Northern and Southern Fells as that is how the summit list is split. Starts and finishes are from locations where parking is presumed possible but not confirmed.

No photos as I haven’t visited the country.
