Project Description

The Yorkshire Dales National Park has launched a free GPS-enabled walking app offering 35 fantastic trails for walkers of all ages and abilities.

The app is suitable for Apple and Android smartphones and the walks are a mix of linear and circular routes, graded to help make an informed choice of walk, either a list or map view.

The app’s key feature is an offline mapping tool that allows you to track a walk, regardless of whether there’s a mobile phone signal or not. It also contains essential information such as the Countryside Code, what kit to take, and safety tips, and provides links throughout to more detailed information on this website where needed.

We’ve picked the walks from that are within a decent distance of Peaks and Pods.
Next to the name of the town or village, we’ve included information about how far the starting point is from our site and how long it might take to drive to the starting point.

Buckden – 30 miles from Peaks and Pod (1hr drive away)
Burnsall – 23 miles (50 min)
Devil’s Bridge (nr Kirkby Lonsdale) – 20 miles (32 min)
Grassington – 22 miles (50 min)
Hawes – 31 miles (50 min)
Kettlewell – 28 miles (55 min)
Malham – 12 miles (30 min)
Malham Tarn – 11 miles (35 min)
