Showing You the Way ..... Muker to Thwaite Circular

Showing You the Way ...... 
is a series of 3 illustrated walk leaflets for children.  
Pick up a leaflet in the Keld Countryside & Heritage Centre.
Today we explored the Cowus (cow house) trail, a circular walk from Muker to Thwaite and back.

This walk is 2.8 miles with a 600ft ascent. 

The first section is quite an uphill pull but once you get to Kisdon Houses it is level or downhill all the way .........

........ with magnificent views in all directions.
Looking east above and looking west below

 Once out onto the heather moor the path becomes rocky & uneven.  Although part of the Pennine Way, it is no more than a sheep trod and care is required.

Challenging and fun, this walk will bring out the adventurer in you! 

Back in the valley bottom follow the meadow paths, through narrow squeeze stiles to Muker.

But not before a well deserved picnic by the stream.
