The Tributaries Walk is a brand new guide book from the author of “Walking the Herriot Way“.

As its name suggests, the Tributaries Walk is focussed on the rivers, becks and gills that flow through the valleys of the Yorkshire Dales. Beginning in Ingleton, the trail explores beautiful valleys and the high heather-clad moors that separate them. Visiting as many ‘dales’ as possible, the route meanders; picking out waterfalls, hidden caves, rocky escarpments and old packhorse bridges. The guide book encourages interaction and includes a quiz to help walkers get the most out of their visit, with a final map challenge to test the grey matter.

The route visits thirteen different ‘dales’ and each one has one or more rivers, becks or streams running through it. Crossing between dales takes you over some wonderful high moorland and mountain terrain, past remote tarns and the trail visits some of the most picturesque villages anywhere in the country. The diversity of scenery and terrain makes this path a firm favourite with everyone who has walked it.

The book itself is a 150-page guide that has everything a walker could need to plan, prepare and walk the seven day route through Yorkshire’s limestone country.

Detailed walking instructions take you step by step through the route, ensuring you can navigate with ease and confidence.

A comprehensive town and village guide provides information about the facilities, services and amenities in each of the settlements the route passes through, including public transport links to get to and from the start.

    I bought the book a while ago and walked it last summer – the maps were excellent and the route notes were spot on, the level of detail is incredible and I particularly loved the interactive quiz that runs through the book 🙂
