Walk Route: From the Dales Centre, we proceed to Stanhope Hall, then follow the Stanhope Burn for a while before heading west via Widley Field, Pease Mires, and Mount Pleasant to the open moor. We then skirt around the perimeter of the medieval hunting park in a clockwise direction, before cutting through the forest to pass Park Shops back to the Stanhope Burn, which we follow downstream to Stanhope. There are alternatives for those seeing shorter walks.
