Overview

This off road cycle route takes you on stony tracks high above the valley before descending to Bouthwaite and returning through farmland back up the valley.

Description

This a real Dales classic that is easily reached if you start in Pateley Bridge (Landranger 99/SE157656). It takes the lane NW out of town towards Ramsgill and follows this to Ramsgill, where a parallel bridleway continues almost to Middlesmoor.

A steep road climb gains the village and a track continues NW from here, eventually dropping to Scarhouse Reservoir. Cross the dam and follow a BW E then S then E to the road near Ouster Bank. A continuation track now leads to Lul Beck. Another track now leads S and SW to Bouthwaite, where a lane can be taken SE to Wath and on back to Pateley Bridge.
