Route Description for Mastiles Lane and Arncliffe Cote Walk
While the Mastiles Lane and Arncliffe Cote Walk is a lengthy route that is sure to give your legs a killer workout, it also provides some absolutely stunning views across the undulating landscape of the Yorkshire Dales. Be prepared with sturdy walking boots and bring plenty of water/snacks to stay fuelled along the trail!
Setting out from the trailhead, you will initially walk to the southeast to pass through the village of Kilnsey, turning to the southwest along Mastiles Lane as it cuts across the terrain below the rocky Kilnsey Crag. Continue along this track, as it leads you to the southwest on a path that climbs uphill across the rugged terrain of the moor.
Reaching the southwest corner of the route, you will be met with a stone wall just before a junction. Do not pass through the gate here. Instead, take the faint path on your right that leads to the northeast across the moor. After passing through a boggy stretch of terrain and climbing even further uphill across the moor, you will descend the hillside and pass by Arncliffe Cote to meet back up with the road. Follow this to the southeast to return to the trailhead.
