Route Description for Skinner Howe and Holiday Hill Circular Walk
A fantastic walking route that showcases the natural beauty of the moors, the Skinner Howe and Holiday Hill Circular Walk will lead you across the rugged landscape of the region for some amazing views of the undulating terrain that spreads out in every direction.
