Guided social walk

Join us on the second Sunday of every month for a free social walk led by our volunteers.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Everyone is welcome to join us on a monthly social walk led by our volunteers. We'll have a different walk on offer, with varying lengths and difficulty. Children must be accompanied by an adult and dogs must be kept on a short lead. These social walks will take place on the second Sunday of every month.

Sunday 14 July

This mixed gradient, circular walk will take you via smelthouses. See views across Nidderdale, Fellbeck and over the Vale of York towards the White Horse at Kelburn.

This route is approximately 5 miles long and will last around 2 and a half hours, starting and finishing at the refreshment kiosk for a well earned hot drink.

This walk is perfect if you're visiting via the 825 Eastern Dales Bus. Visit the 'Getting Here' section on Brimham Rocks' home page to find the timetable.

This route has a mixture of uneven gravel paths, narrow, muddy and boggy sections. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a short lead.

Keep an eye on this page as we will update it with details about each months walk. The social walk in August will be on Sunday 11.
