Ilkley & Ilkley Moor

Nesfield and Upper Austby Walk
A walk suitable for reasonably fit, occasional walkers, along the level valley bottom following the river Wharfe, before starting a gentle climb from Nesfield up to wooded hillside to the highest point of our route near Upper Austby. From here it is level or down hill all the way back. This walk is not suitable for the less mobile, wheelchair users and children in pushchairs.
