Dales Way: Leeds Link
Max transport gap <20km
A 35km walk linking the centre of Leeds with the Dales Way at Ilkley.
There are public transport links at key staging posts along the route.
Though the route is longer than our standard one-day walks (it takes about 8.5 hours according to Naismith’s Rule at 5km/h), it may be shortened by taking a bus to the official start at Woodhouse Moor, or farther into the suburbs.
