Grass Woods, Grassington

Location: BD23 5NE

Distance: 5km circular

Grass Woods is located on the back road just out of Grassington towards Conistone. It is a Yorkshire Wildlife Trust site. Parking is free on the roadside.

There are lots of routes to explore within the woods so you could make the walk as long or as short as you wanted. We did a full circular and explored off path clocking up 5km.

Little Man loved exploring this wood and even though it was rainy the whole time he was happy looking for sticks, spotting fungi, finding spiders webs in trees, collecting nature treasure, jumping off things, running down hills. There was even a historic hidden folly!

The paths vary but it was very muddy so not a pram friendly route.

Go and explore and see what you can find! Make sure you take the snacks though as we clocked up 5km without even realising.

There are lots of other walks in the Upper Wharfedale area so a great place to base yourself. Nearby walks such as Linton Falls and Conistone Dib are our particular favourites.
