This is a fascinating 1½ mile (2.4 km) walk to find the Red Squirrels of Wensleydale and other wildlife. Join our volunteer rangers on a search for tracks and signs of local wildlife, ending at the Snaizeholme Red Squirrel view point. Find out how we have managed to protect and record the squirrels both here and elsewhere in the Yorkshire Dales National Park over recent years. This is a must for wildlife spotters and photographers. If you have binoculars don’t forget them!

This walk has plenty of stops but does cover some very steep uneven ground, steps and one steep ascent, and it can be muddy. Sturdy shoes or wellies recommended. If you have any questions about the route please contact Hawes National Park Centre on 01969 666210.

Walk starts from the Dales Countryside Museum, Hawes, DL8 3NT.

No dogs (assistance dogs welcome).

Cost £8 adult and £3 children, this includes the cost of transport to Snaizeholme.
