The Settle Loop

Part of the new Pennine Bridleway National Trail   

The Settle Loop is the first 10 mile (16km) section of what will eventually be the 350 mile Pennine Bridleway National Trail. This will run from Middleton Top in Derbyshire through Lancashire, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Cumbria, to Byrness in Northumberland. Opened in August 2005, the Settle Loop is a circuit starting and ending in Settle and was created to allow horse-riders, mountain-bikers and walkers to spend a whole day in the Yorkshire Dales National Park whilst journeying along the National Trail.
