Cautley Spout, Howgill Fells, and the Calf Walk Description

If you don’t mind a bit of a challenge that includes trudging your way uphill across several rugged fells for some beautifully scenic views, then the Cautley Spout, Howgill Fells, and the Calf Walk will be a fun adventure to get you out exploring the Yorkshire Dales.

Setting out from the car park, you will follow the River Rawthey for a short distance to the west, before turning to the northwest to climb up the steep hillside on the way to Cautley Spout. Take some time to appreciate the beautiful sight of the waterfall before heading left at the fork in the path to continue your uphill climb.

Traversing the undulating terrain of the moor to the southwest, you will follow along the banks of Force Gill Beck, before turning to the northwest on the climb up to the Calf. From here, you will work around a small body of water and continue around the loop portion of the trail to reach the northeastern corner of the route. Here, you will need to navigate the moor on the way downhill to meet up with the main path that initially led you uphill. Follow this back to the southeast to return to the trailhead.
