Overview

From the car park in Buckden we make a short uphill climb along Buckden Rake before dropping down through the fields to reach tbe village of Hubberholme. From here we have a short road walk before turning off onto the Dales Way footpath which we follow close by the river Wharfe until we reach the village of Kettlewell were we will stop for a lunch break.( cafes,pubs and toilets).                                          After the break we continue on along the Dales Way footpath before turning off at Conistone Dib and heading over Grassington moor,and then dropping down past Bare House and into Grassington .Refreshments will be at the Devonshire P.H. after the walk.
