Easy & Short Walks

Lots of local short walks to choose from on this page, nearly all can be downloaded or printed off. They all have very detailed directions to follow.

Many start in the town, some involve a short bus or car ride to the start.

If you are not sure about which of the walks are suitable for you, have a look at our Introduction to Easy Walking

Hebden Bridge to Mytholmroyd – there and back easy walks

This is a new project to develop eight different routes between the two adjacent towns. Each will be about 1.5 – 2 miles in each direction, making great circular walks. It is work in progress and more and better directions will follow.

Easy walks in the valley bottom

There are three valley bottom walks you can download and print off from this website:

Easy walks on the tops

For all walks on the tops we recommend that people always be prepared for bad weather. You can set off in brilliant sunshine and 15 minutes later be in horizontal freezing rain. Always take a waterproof and a hat and don’t assume that your mobile phone will work.

For these walks we try to provide information on how to get to the start by public transport. If you find this too daunting, we provide a car alternative at the end of the directions.
