A nice easy walk in upper Nidderdale


Easy but muddy paths, with some walking along a dry river bed

Hazards and warnings

There are many entrances into the cave systems below - unless you know what you are doing don't go in


A nice easy sunday morning walk along the infant river Nidd to explore the weird sight of a river which vanishes and reappears several times as it flows above cave systems below.


Despite it being march, the cold winter had left the odd patch of snow around, with lots more snow higher up the hills and huge snow patches on the bigger peaks like Great Whernside. Still, the sun was out and there was a definate feeling of spring in the air, despite the odd rainy squall drifting over.
