Walking in the Sedbergh Area

There is an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways in this part of the Yorkshire Dales. It is sign–posted and maintained by rangers and volunteers from the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Garsdale, Dentdale and the Rawthey Valley offer a range of lowland walking routes, while the more challenging Howgill Fells rise directly above Sedbergh.

For those with a few days to spare, there are some terrific routes from Sedbergh and Dent over to Swaledale, Wensleydale and the Three Peaks. And Bowness on Windermere is just two days walk away on the Dales Way.

Link to Walkers are Welcome website Sedbergh is a 'Walkers Are Welcome' town – part of a national network of small towns and villages that promote walking and make walkers feel welcome.

The Sedbergh Area Walking and Cycling Group promotes walking in this area, as does the Information and Book Centre on the town's Main Street. For information about the Sedbergh Area Walking and Cycling Group, please contact the Secretary, Carole Nelson. If you wish to be added to the group's e-mailing list, please contact Robert Powell
