The 53-mile Nidderdale Way is a long-established walking/hiking/running route in the Yorkshire Dales from the lowland pastures to the open fells near the source of the River Nidd. It travels the length of the Nidd Valley and then back again on the other side, at times following the River Nidd, but often detouring away to include as many points of interest for walkers as possible. The route takes in iconic sights in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including Gouthwaithe Reservoir, the villages of Pateley Bridge and Hampsthwaite, Ripley Castle, Merryfield Miles, Brimham Rocks, Heyshaw Moor and the Smelthouses old lead mill.
