B Walk from Kettlewell 2016

Walk Leader: John Adamson
Total Distance: 6+ Miles
Total ascent/descent: 1550 Ft

B Route

The walk from Kettlewell heads west from the village, and climbs up and over Hawkswick Moor, where there are some beautiful views of Wharfedale and the surrounding hills. The path continues over the top and proceeds down towards the River Skirfare and into the lovely village of Arncliffe for lunch. 

We then head south east down Littondale and alongside the River Skirfare, until we reach Hawkswick village. Here we start the diagonal climb up and round the end of Hawkswick Fell and back to Kettlewell. This is a B+ Walk with two fairly steep sections during the climb. There are also one or two sections which will become slippy if it is wet.
