Discover Orton Scar

Orton, Small carpark in market square | | CA10 3RU

July 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

A  4½ mile (7km) walk with spectacular views of the Howgills and Lakeland fells. Beautiful limestone pavements, local farms and barns and a prehistoric stone circle.

This fantastic walk not only has breath taking views of the Howgills and Lakeland fells, but also the chance to see some of the beautiful limestone pavements which characterise so much of the Dales, as well as local farms and barns and a prehistoric stone circle. You will discover aspects of history from over 3,000 years ago right up to relatively modern times. Refreshments  are available in Orton before and after the walk.

The initial ascent is quite strenuous but we will not rush you! Boots recommended – paths with exposed limestone, and possible muddy sections. There are stiles on this walk. YDNPA level 3 walk.

No dogs (assistance dogs welcome)

Places are limited, booking advisable from Hawes National Park Centre
