Howgills & Limestone Trail

The Howgills and Limestone Trail is a 76 mile long-distance walk from Kirkby Stephen to Settle through this picturesque and, in parts, demanding area of Cumbria and North Yorkshire - with a short diversion into Lancashire.

It draws its inspiration from Alfred Wainwright's Walks in Limestone Country andWalks in the Howgill Fells.

The route has strong associations with railways. It passes over the spectacular Smardale Gill viaduct, and close to the Stainmore Railway, the disused Ingleton and Tebay Railway, and the Settle–Carlisle railway.
