|Comments:||A very pleasant walk, mainly on grassy tracks. We took a slight detour to avoid having descend Gordale Scar, but walked into the valley to watch a few people climbing up by the waterfall. From there a road walk took us up to the track to Weets Top where we had lunch. Stone tracks and grassy paths then took us over moorland and back to the cars.|
