Walk Information
The walk linking the two market towns of Keighley and Bingley is suitable for most reasonably fit occasional walkers starting with a steep uphill climb through the urban back streets of Keighley, levelling out as you cross the fields and moorland high above the Aire Valley with its long distance views from Druids Altar. From here it's downhill all the way to finish walking mainly through woodland of the St Ives Estate, before crossing the River Aire into the more formal surroundings of Myrtle Park as you near the end of your walk in Bingley town centre. From where you return by public transport to Keighley.

Strong footwear is required and outdoor clothing to suit the season. Packed lunch with drinks is also recommended. This walk is not suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and people with limited mobility.
