Nidderdale Way


High Street
Pateley Bridge
North Yorkshire


Walking Route

The Nidderdale Way is a 53 mile circular walk beginning and ending in Pateley Bridge in the heart of Nidderdale.

The walk travels the length of the valley, and then back again on the other side, at times following the River Nidd, but often detouring away to include as many points of interest for walkers as possible.

The way can be completed in two days by the truly committed and energetic, or in as many as 7 for the more leisurely who like to take in all the views and points of interest.

The most popular and convenient number of days for completing the walk is 4.

This allows 4 sections of roughly even length:- Pateley Bridge to Middlesmoor, Middlesmoor to Bewerley (or Pateley Bridge), Bewerley to Ripley and Ripley to Pateley Bridge.

Along the way you will take in quiet side valleys, old lead mines, the curious formations of Brimham Rocks and the panoramic and open view from Guise Cliff.

You will cross Scar House Dam, walk along both sides of Gouthwaite Reservoir, experience exposed moorland tracks and sheltered riverside paths, find rest bite in the many cafes and pubs that line the route, and warm welcomes in the guesthouses and inns of the larger villages.
