This programme of walks starts with a lesser known route from the edge of the lake district to Staveley. The route takes in Bretherdale Head along the Breasthigh Road to the top of Borrowdale to Garnett Bridge and Potter Tarn. Our second walk is the classic Nine Standard Riggs, from Kirkby Stephen, with the shorter walk going to Pendragon Castle. New to Bolton Ramblers is the twin peaks of Randygill Top and Green Bell in the Howgills. The shorter walk goes to Raisbeck and then crosses Ravenstonedale Moor, Friar's Bottom and Smardale Bridge.

The second half of our programme goes into Yorkshire and the place of great drama for Bolton Ramblers. In 2004 the coach was descending into Pateley Bridge when the brakes failed, the drivers' only option to stop was to crash the coach into a stonewall! So, they all started the walk from the crash point and left the driver to sort out the mess - tough lot these ramblers. The Nidderdale Rambles takes sections from the Nidderdale Way including Studley Royal Park, Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks, roman crossing point at Hampsthwaite and Ripley Castle. The final walk is from the Six Dales Trail from Blubberhouses down to Otley past the reservoirs of Fewiston and Swintsy along Washburndale and into Wharfedale.

We are providing three walks per coach ramble some challenging but most classed as moderate walking, plus an easy walk of around 5 miles.
