5 Walks In The Yorkshire Dales

 

 Public Transport Walks in Yorkshire Dales

It may well be possible to do any of my walks using public transport if you are prepared to walk far enough from the last point where public transport connects. However, one has to be reasonable and I have only listed below those of my Yorkshire Dales walks where access is sensibly feasible. How feasible depends on timing and where you are starting from and a useful tool for working out your public transport journey is http://www.yorkshiretravel.net
