The Southern Area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is renowned for its stunning limestone scenery. This is Three Peaks country, with the start of the classic 25 mile Three Peaks route at Horton in Ribblesdale only ten minutes drive away. If you want something a little less challenging then follow one of the old drover's lanes that criss-cross the area and explore the limestone scars and pavements of Oxenber, Moughton and Norber, or experience the quiet solitude of Crummackdale.
