Eaves Wood is a hidden gem. Criss-crossed with old stone steps that wind their way up to Hepstonstall it’s worthy of some exploration. This route keeps you in the trees so if the weather isn’t playing ball this route offers plenty of shelter. Distance: 3.5km / 2.2miles Total Ascent: 156m / 511ft

This is a big one so pack your sarnies before you leave. This route tries to take in as much varied scenery as possible, from the woods of the valley to the Yorkshire savannah on the tops. A great ramble, especially if the sun is out. Distance: 16.4km / 10.2miles Height Gain: 575m / 1886ft
