Saturday 25th September 2021, Western Yorkshire Dales walk – Gragerth and Grag Hill Horseshoe

Co-ordinator: David Nightingale

Join me for a 10mile, 5 ½ hour, hill walk exploring an enchanting but less well-known area of the Yorkshire Dales, easily accessible from Junction 34 or 36 of the M6.

Our circular route will start near Leck Fell House above the village of Cowan Bridge on the A65. We will explore the dry riverbed of Ease Gill, its sinkholes and cave entrances, climb to the trig point on Crag Hill (682m) and then follow a high-level circuit of Great Coum (687m), Green Hill (628m) and Gragerth (627m) before returning to our start point. If the weather’s fair we’ll be treated to extensive views of Whernside and Ingleborough, the Lake District, the Howgill Fells and the Lancashire Coast.

Meet/park at 10.00 am at the informal parking area close to Leck Fell House where there is limited parking GR SD 674 789. Leave the A65 at Cowan Bridge and follow sign for Leck. Keep on the lane through Leck and follow the single track fell road for three miles, to a parking area where the road ends a few yards before Leck Fell House.
