Trailblazer Guide: Dales Way - Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windemere

The popular Dales Way long-distance footpath begins in Ilkley, West Yorkshire and runs for 84 miles (135km) to end in the Lake District, in Bowness-on-Windermere.

It follows riverside paths along the River Wharf towards Ribblehead and the watershed of northern England, then meanders along the river valleys of Dentdale, the River Mint and the River Kent dropping down into the Lake District to end beside Lake Windermere. It's a relatively easy walk that takes about a week.


  • Unique mapping features - In many walking guides the reader has to read a route description then try to relate it to the map. Our guides are easier to use because walking directions, tricky junctions, places to stay and eat, points of interest and walking times are all written onto the maps themselves in the places to which they apply. With their uncluttered clarity, these are not general-purpose maps but fully- edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. Downloadable GPS waypoints also included.
  • The largest scale walking maps available - At just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 31/8 inches to 1 mile) our maps are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops.
  • An all-in-one guide - Trailblazer guides include practical information not usually found in walking guides to the UK: reviews of places to stay, places to eat, attractions along the way and detailed pub- lic transport information showing all access points on the path, for weekend and day walkers.
  • 40 large-scale maps at just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 31/8 inches to 1 mile).
  • Colour overview and stage maps (one stage per page) with trail profiles.
  • Walking with a dog. Henry Stedman, the author, was accompanied along the Dales Way by his dog, Daisy.
