MILES-6.6 MILES approx     HEIGHT-508M 

ASCENT-370M ascent approx

FACILITIES- NON BUT GRASSINGTON HAS PUB,CAFE AND TOILETS

TERRAIN- Well trodden paths but in poor visibility it would be difficult to follow, with  gentle inclines so a good beginner walk, of easy walking.


War memorial ridge walk between Skipton and Grassington,  can can see the cross from the road.

We went clockwise and feel this would be easier as the ascent from Cracoe summit is less defined, but you can see the direction you need to go and once on the path its easier to follow.

NO ACCESS FOR DOGS ON THE MOORS IN THIS AREA.

Follow the sign post for Rylstone church across the road from parking. Continue past the church. You go through the gateway to the farm and across the track through the field, its a easy level path that you follow to the junction where you turn left and go up the lane towards the hill.

You come to a information board on Barden Moors, go through the gate and follow the path up hill at a gentle incline. 

You come to a left turn off towards some rocky outcrops up to Rylstone cross, take care as its a narrow path but only a short section until you reach the top, follow the wall along and you come to the memorial.

You will spot the tall oblique in the distances which is your next point.

Go over the wall and turn left, you are on a faint but well trodden path among the heather, along this path there is various rocky sections for the kids to stop and climb or a great place for a picnic.

When you reach the next memorial you walk past it and take a left down the hillside, its a faint path and as you get lower down it becomes very boggy, mine all had fun rolling down this section of hillside.

Head for the gate at the bottom left and go through it, you then turn left and follow the path to the starting point.
