A pleasant walk along the Wharfe, upstream from Grassington, then a right turn up the hill, leads to a large area of woodland (Woodland Trust and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust) with many pleasant paths and a return route that leads to the top of the village.

The nature reserve needs boarding out it is extremely boggy and uncomfortable under foot. Not suitable in bad weather for children.

Some great trails in Grass woods for all abilities, some canny hills too. You could spend a few hours in here, limited parking

We explored this nature reserve and had an excellent time climbing to the top of the wooded hill which conceals a Romano British Hill fort. A pleasant climb up and down. Good walking shoes are required and well worth a half day stroll.

I had already done lots of walking during my few short days in the Dales and this was my final hurrah as I began my journey home. Oh my, I fell in love with this place. I was lucky enough to visit during the week,...More
