A short walk from Conistone to "The Pie" - Approx 3 miles - Easy



Conistone is a small hamlet a few miles north of Grassington. Park on the road by the bridge over the river. walk straight on iinto the tiny village. Bear left and then immediateley stright on up a path with cottages to your left. Through a gate signposted to the Dib and into the spectacular narrow gorge.

Follow the gorge up hill over what was once a waterfall, now dry as a bone and emerge into more open country with huge banks of limestone scree on either side. Keep heading up hill along the obvious path, through another kissing gate before arriving at a small gate that enters you into narrow ravine. An easy scramble up the Limestone rocks brings you out on the top of the fell on the Dales Way.

Turn left over a flat bridge, through a gate and then forward towards the likestone pavement ahead, crossing a broad stoney track, that you will return to after visiting Conistone Pie.

From here, skirt to the left of the raised Limestone pavement and follow the grassy path towards a wall stile with the Pie shaped rock now in view. Cross the stile and head for the rocky outcrop that is Conistone Pie. A great place for a spot of lunch with great views in to the Yorkshire dales.

Return along the same grassy path to the broad stone track you crossed earlier and turn right. Follow this path down hill all the way to the road. Turn left on the road and head back into the village, passing the ancient church on your right, which is said to be one of the oldest buildings in Yorkshire. In the hamlet turn right and head back to the bridge.
