The Yorkshire Dales is a fabulous place to go walking whether you are looking for a gentle stroll besides one of the many rivers, or you are looking for a hike on a wild and empty moorland.
If you find walking a challenge or your group includes a wheelchair or buggy then have a look in our Access for all abilities section.
If your navigation is not up to scratch or you are not a confident walker, you can always join a guided walk or take one of the suggested short walks which are based around village centres.
If you are planning to walk with your dog please visit our bringing your dog page.
Always follow the Countryside Code.
It's brilliant to get out into the great outdoors but it is also vital that you stay safe. You can find out the things you need to consider before heading out into the hills and what to do in an emergency on our Being safe in the National Park page.
