The 2020 DalesRail season will start on Sunday 17th May 2020, the walks programme is being prepared and will appear here once finalised.
The DalesRail Walks Programme is the most comprehensive guided walks programme in the country and the 2020 season will see around 70 guided walks over the 17 Sundays and these will all be led by experienced leaders from the Lancashire Rail Ramblers. The programme will include walks graded very strenuous, strenuous or moderately strenuous for the more experienced walkers. For the slightly less experienced there are walks graded moderate or moderately easy and for those who are new to guided walks or like an easier day there are walks graded easy, easy stroll or snail-paced walk.
DalesRail has also produced leaflets for short self-guide circular walks around the historic town of Appleby and the border city of Carlisle.
