Many characteristics of the Yorkshire Dales alter day by day, changing with the seasons, the weather and the hour-making the area an ideal destination for the walker. The unique limestone landscape encompasses vast expanses of high, lonely moor and respectable-sized hills, but it is the intricate web of valleys such as Wharfedale and Swaledale that gives the area its name. The Ice Age was crucial in moulding this landscape of wet upland bog to lush riverside meadows, green valleys and verdant woodland. Spectacular waterfalls are another typical feature and this guide of 20 short walks in the Yorkshire Dales visits those at Aysgarth, Hardraw, Burton Force, Mill Gill and Catrigg Force.
