23. A Gunnerside Hike
Meeting Point: Car Park, Gunnerside, Richmond, DL11 6LE
We start at the village of Gunnerside, in Richmondshire. This picturesque dales walk heads westwards along the valley, before meeting the River Swale and turning north, skirting around the lower slopes of Black Hill.
Then we follow the bend in the river around to Keld - a crossing point for both the Coast to Coast Walk and the Pennine Way.
Time to cross the Swale at Keld and climb up, coming back along the valley, before dropping into the charming village of Muker. We cross the river again and pick up a track that leads us back to Gunnerside.
