A circuit around the spectacular wooded Shibden Dale. It may feel longer than 6 miles because there is some climbing involved (about 300m of ascent), especially in the middle part of the walk at the upper end of the dale. 

Please note the early start time – there is a large car park but it is likely to get busy quickly thanks to the big increase in visitor numbers at the nearby Shibden Hall. There are also buses from Halifax and Bradford. There is a cafe and toilets at the visitor's centre.

Car park at Shibden Park, Old Godley Lane, off Godley Lane, Halifax.
