The Dales Way passes through some wonderful pastures and woodland in Dentdale, as well as several colourful, traditionally managed meadows.
Dentdale meadow walk
The best time to visit a meadow is in June, as most of the wildflowers will be flowering by then. Bear in mind that hay cutting usually starts around mid July depending on the weather. Meadows provide winter fodder for livestock so please stay on the public rights of way and walk in single file (there is no ‘right to roam’ through meadows).
