Dales 30

Saturday 29 July 2017. I still have a couple of caravanning/walking trips booked for what remains of this summer but my thoughts are already turning to what I might do next year. I recently came across a list of the top 30 hills in the Dales. I did the 3rd highest hill, Great Shunner Fell a couple of years ago but I’ve only done 13 (highlighted in red) of the top 30 so there is still plenty of scope to do more.

The caravan sites at Hawes and Wharfedale (Grassington) are ideal bases from which to explore the 17 hills that I’ve still to climb and visits will be scheduled next year. Some of these hills are the summit of vast areas of moorland without any direct footpaths so they will certainly be a challenge.
