Overview

From Lofthouse we will make our way along a short section of the   Nidderdale Way  before turning off to encounter  a steep climb onto the moors and up to Ouster Bank Trig (weather permitting).  Please note the terrane is rough up to the trig point following  grouse paths.   On a good day there will be good views. On returning to the  road path we will see over Sype Land, Fountains Earth Moor and its rocks and crags only leaving the path for a short period.  We head down to Bouthwaite and then follow  a good path back to Lofthouse through  the fields and  tracks.
