Start the walk from the small village of Conistone and climb through the dry valley of the Conistone Dib. There is a splendid limestone pavement above the Dib. Continue uphill through some limestone scars and past an example of an old lime kiln where the limestone was crushed. The views across Wharfedale and in to Littondale are lovely. Drop back down to towards the valley and join the Dales Way. Follow this south past the Conistone Pie before returning to Conistone.
