The Most Beautiful Walks to Take in Yorkshire

Updated: 20 May 2017
One of England’s most beautiful counties, Yorkshire is prime walking country. Whether you prefer the purple-hued wilderness of the moors, the challenge of climbing high peaks, or tranquil walks along a river, the scenery is stunning. Narrowing down the best walks in the region is a near impossible task, as you could spend years seeking out new routes, but here are four of our favourite spots for gorgeous views and interesting hikes.

Malham Cove

The Yorkshire Dales are filled with spectacular scenery, cascading waterfalls and towering peaks, but it’s perhaps the limestone pavement above Malham Cove that is the most dramatic landscape. The circular walk takes you from the town, along the river to the bottom of the cove, before climbing steeply up and allowing hikers to teeter on the edge of the precipice, walk on the unusual limestone surface and (on a clear day) admire the views for miles around. If you’d prefer a longer walk, add on the extra loop to Malham Tarn and back to enjoy more of the local scenery.
