Walking Options

There are so many walking options when using Hebden Bridge as a base

  • Gentle walks exploring the town, canal and local river valleys
  • Gentle walks using the local buses to get onto ‘the tops’ to walk on the high fields and moors without having a steep climb
  • Local history walks – in Hebden Bridge, Heptonstall, Hardcastle Crags or Colden Valley
  • Visiting local interest sites – Stoodley Pike hill top monument, Hardcastle Crags National Trust woodland, sites connected to the poems of Ted Hughes or the grave of Sylvia Plath
  • Half day walks using good paths and tracks – some walks can be done in stout shoes rather than boots.
  • Full day walks, at your own pace, exploring the various wooded valleys and moorland tops
  • The Pennine Way to Haworth (one way by bus), the Pennine Way Loop day walk; day sections of the Calderdale Way
  • Trek conditioning hikes taking in several steep valley climbs and descents – for example, the double loop around Stoodley Pike (total ascent 500m/1500ft) or even the triple loop (total ascent 700m/2000ft)! These include some of the demanding steep climbs in the area

Let me know what type of walk you would like and I can then discuss options and provide an itinerary
