Walk Description

Start in the large village of Reeth in the centre of Swaledale. Head down to the River Swale, cross at the swing bridge before turning right. Follow the river initially across open fields before arriving at some attractive woodland. Cross the river at Low Whita and soon join the path next to the northern bank. The views across the dale are excellent, typical farmland, dry stone walls, barns and of course sheep. The track leads back to Reeth.
