Route Info

Like most routes out of Pateley Bridge this one begins with a climb, initially on tarmac but then off on to a bridleway climbing up on to the moors. When you meet the road take care as traffic moves fast on this section, but you soon turn off and head along a quiet road to the start of the long stone track across Pockstones Moor. This is a great track taking you across remote moorland.

At the far end you head along another track which brings you out on the Grassington to Pateley road. This is followed past Stump Cross Caverns and up to the high point by Greenhow Quarry. There is a great side trip up to the viewpoint at Coldstones Cut.

Opposite the quarry it is back on to tracks which take you down to an old lead mining area. This is an interesting spot and provides a great bit of technical riding down to the bottom end. You then cross a bridge on to a track and a lovely easy return to town.
