Walks to the Dales 30

This page shows all my Dales 30 walks. The list is sorted in date order, with the most recent walk at the top of the page. You can get a rough idea of how easy or difficult the walk is likely to be from the distance and height gain numbers on the walk. Click on the walk name to get more information for that walk, including a dynamic OS map and a downloadable GPX file for your GPS device.

The Dales 30 (previously called the Yorkshire Top 30) were originally an arbitrary list of fells compiled by me, based on no scientific or official classification criteria. However, I have since adopted the rather more scientific list compiled by Johnny Smith in his book entitled 'The Dales 30'.

The list comprises the highest 30 hills within the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, of at least 2000ft with a minimum drop of 30m on all sides. This essentially becomes the 30 highest Hewitts in the Dales National Park.
