Just beyond Reeth stands the Youth Hostel at Grinton Lodge, sitting right on the edge of the moors and a short hop takes the path into the glorious heather and open moorland around Gibbon Hill and then along the rough but easy Apedale Road. After Dent’s Houses the path drops steeply down to the village of Castle Bolton and the atmospheric remains of the castle. More fields and back lanes lead to the very impressive falls at Aysgarth and then to the village itself.
