8.75 miles , some steep sections, paths can be narrow and winding

Join Steven and the OutdoorLads for a less challenging, relaxed slower paced hike around Swaledale upstream of the pretty Yorkshire town of Richmond.

The walk visits the terrace around the castle walls , the waterfalls below the town and a nearby ruined abbey.

The route makes use of the winding paths in the dense deciduous woodland on the steeper slope above the river and offers great views along the valley with distant glimpses of the Hambleton Hills when crossing to the other side of the valley.

The walk will also visit a popular pub, a community hub in a pretty village high above the river.

After as few days of fine dining and merry drinking why not grab one more walk in the year 2019.
