About trip

he walk visits two of the unsung highlights of the Wharfedale area. Conistone Dib is an exciting climb through a dry valley which includes a super narrow section between two limestone pillars. It ends with a short scramble onto the limestone pavement between Grassington and Kettlewell. After Conistone Dib the walk continues over more limestone to Bycliffe, then on to Mossdale Scar. The scar is notable for here Mossdale Beck disappears, never to be seen above ground again. It is fascinating watching the waters of the beck disappear through rocky cracks in the scar. The walk concludes with a quiet moorland walk back to Grassington.
