I started this walk from the caravan park the girls and myself where staying at for a week in the Dales.From Hawkswick Cote Caravan Park I walked down a single track lane to meet the River Skirfare.
A short way along the River I strolled into Arncliffe to begin climbing towards Old Cote Moor Top where there is a trig point.This is not the highest point, to get there it is another kilometer along to a pile of stones at a height of 610m.
Retracing my steps back to the trig point I descended back towards Litton and again met the River Skirfare to make it back to Hawkswick.
The walks best parts were along the river, as it was getting late the wildlife was emerging.I spotted a Deer, pair of Tawney Owls and a Badger.
