NORTH RIGTON AND SMARTIES

There are a few climbs to North Rigton via Almscliffe Cragg but you will be surprised how accessible this routeis, we take the hills in a very steady manner.

Gentle Option A:

16 miles

This is a lovely route which goes along the back roads to Huby and then goes up Gravelly Hill to Almscliffe Crag,with plenty of stops on the way. After Almscliffe Crag there is a downhillstretch to the pub. We return toAlmscliffe Crag and then take a right hand turn so that we can descend onthe back roads to Otley.
