Guided Walk, Threshfield Quarry Copyright Stephen Garnett

Our guided walks

We are not taking any bookings at the moment because of the current situation with Corona virus. We will update our guided walks programme when we have more information.

Join our Dales Volunteers on one of our guided walks, taking place in locations across the National Park! You can find our ‘Walk with us’ online booklet with the full programme of guided walks here.

Running a cohesive programme of inspirational, participatory activities is one of the objectives agreed by the Authority and a wide range of local partner organisations in the National Park Management Plan 2019-24.

When are they?

They run from April to October.

What’s on offer?

See beautiful landscapes, ancient woodlands and stunning waterfalls. Find out about lead mining and quarrying. Discover wild flowers, you might even catch a glimpse of a red squirrel or leaping salmon. All this for £6 per person and free for 18 year olds and under.

How strenuous are the walks?

Many of the walks are easy going or moderate with some gradients, stiles and uneven ground.

Are dogs allowed?

For your safety and the safety of wildlife and livestock, we only allow dogs on a few specific guided walks. You can find out which walks allow dogs by looking at the walk details.

What should I bring?

Sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing is advisable. Bring plenty to drink and a snack, or a packed lunch on full days. For your own safety and insurance purposes we will ask you for an emergency contact number, as well as an email address for your feedback. The information will be treated as strictly confidential.

How can I find out more details?

All our walks are listed in our events search and are in The Visitor magazine. Alternatively, you can download a copy of the printed programme.  You can book a place through the online shop or through one of our National Park Visitor Centres.
