A short but great family trail of 3.1 miles with an add on i-spy sheet for family fun.  If you just fancy a mooch or want to get the kids interested, this ticks both boxes.

foundation circuit

A little more testing at 5.9 miles. This walk encompasses the John Strutt Foundation land and follows the old railway line out from Kirkby Stephen up onto the high ground and lime stone escarpment before descending back.


This 'Walk On the Clouds' is an amazing route and comes with background information on flora, fauna and history in a PDF.  Only 3.7 miles but the scenery is outstanding as it follows limestone crags and pavements.

Our most iconic hill and the most challenging walk we have available.  The views are amazing from the top and the 10.5 miles makes for an epic day out. 


This is a magic hill and strikes a fantastic silhouette in the skyline.  An adventurous 6.2 miles but definitely worth the explore.  This one is a little trickier to park but you can normally find a spot along the road.
