Walk Details:-

From Strid Wood Car Park we'll follow easy trails through Strid Wood along the river to the Cavendish Pavillion.

Once we reach the Cavendish Pavillion we'll begin the long climb up to Simon's Seat via The Valley of Desolation.

At the top of Simon's Seat we'll enjoy views of the Dales and beyond!

 

Descending Simon's Seat to the hamlet of Skyholme we'll follow an easy scramble through Trollers Gill.

From Troller's Gill we'll next visit the pretty village of Appletreewick before a long, easy walk back along the river to the starting point.

After the walk we will be heading to The Crown in Addingham for a drink and maybe a Pie.
