This long distance footpath of about 80 miles (129 km) from Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere passes through nearby Dentdale and the Lune Valley. By following as far as possible riverside paths, it offers a scenically attractive route from urban West Yorkshire to the Lake District, which any reasonably fit family can undertake in a week's holiday.
