A 1½ mile (2.4km) guided walk in search of the charming Red Squirrels of Wensleydale. Join us on a search for tracks and signs of local wildlife, ending at the Snaizeholme Red Squirrel view point. Find out how we have managed to protect and record the squirrels both here and elsewhere in the Yorkshire Dales National Park over recent years. This is a must for wildlife spotters and photographers. Don’t forget your binoculars, if you own a pair. It will be an afternoon to remember! This walk has plenty of stops but does include a section of steep ground on an uneven footpath, because the walk is a ‘there and back again route’ this steep slope has to be walked both downhill and uphill. Please contact Hawes National Park Centre if you might find this part of the walk difficult or if you have a disability or health condition and would like more details. Sturdy shoes or wellies recommended . This activity will run twice; 10.30 – 13.00 and 14.00  – 16.30.   Both sessions are the same. No dogs (assistance dogs welcome) Places are limited, booking  essential at Hawes National Park Centre.     Find out more »
