    Route Description for Fremington Edge Walk

    If you are after a scenic walking route that will expose you to some amazing views of the valleys and moorlands of the Yorkshire Dales, then the Fremington Edge Walk is the perfect option for a fun day on the trails. There are a few steep climbs to be aware of, but overall, the route is perfectly suited for walkers of a wide range of ages and skill levels.

    Setting out from the village of Reeth, you will make your way southeast along the road and cross over Arkle Beck, picking up a trail that leads more directly south to reach the banks of the River Swale.

After reaching a junction at the northwesternmost point of the route, you will turn to the southwest and descend the steep hillside, traversing the open farmland on the return to the trailhead.
