The Dales Way runs for 79 miles (127 km) from Ilkley in the Yorkshire Dales to Bowness in the Lake District. The route heads north through Wharfedale, crisscrossing the river, and rises over high moorland to pick up River Dee through Dentdale. Briefly it joins River Lune before heading west across the Lake District to Bowness-on-Windermere. Along the Way, you'll see impressive railway viaducts and fine stone bridges; Bolton Priory and many small churches; limestone scenery with stone walls, barns and kilns; and heritage centres you can visit. Above all, the route is blessed with many small villages with a range of accommodation and welcoming pubs at strategic intervals. Gradients are modest and most people will complete it comfortably in 6 or 7 days.
