Start the walk from Hartington, near the bus stop.

A pleasant 5.5Mile walk, along the River Dove, via Wolfscote Dale, and Biggin Dale. The valley is nestled between picturesque slopes, and has a well surfaced path alongside the River. A miners cave can be seen as you return up the adjoining Biggin Dale. The walk is estimated at around 2 hours, .... but we stop off and take in the views too often for it to be that short :O)

Hope you enjoy the stroll.
