No matter what form of mapping they have used, all responsible guidebook writers recommend the long distance walker to carry official large-scale maps.

The Dales Way is a highly varied walk and presents a range of navigational challenges. In the valley bottom you thread your way from meadow to walled lane, from river bank to fellside; weather conditions as you cross the Pennine watershed might well require you to co-ordinate map and compass.

In our Bookshop you will find the appropriate maps to enhance your enjoyment of your walk.

New for 2002, this specially designed strip map, covering the entire route is the latest offering from Harvey Maps.

The route is clearly marked in a large scale innovative style which also conveys information as to whether the trail follows track, path, bridleway or road along particular sections.

These maps are an acquired taste. Undoubtedly, they are clear and reduce painful decision-making. But, the land for only a short distance on either side of the route is shown you may find that this will take away some of your enjoyment of the landscape; you can't use them to give yourself the broader picture, lining up the hilltops around you, for example. They do however, provide essential supplementary information to assist you in planning your walk.

This map is only available in a waterproof edition which has a wax/silicon coasting. The maps fold well into the plastic case with which they are provided but they are not tear resistant.

 
 Ordnance Survey Landranger Maps
Scale 1:50,000; 2cm to 1km; 1 inches to 1 mile

You will need Sheets 104, 97 and 98. The Dales Way is clearly marked. 1:50,000 is a practical working scale, supported by a clear guidebook.

 
These maps are available in three editions:

Paper - they fold well, and are backed with a reasonably durable laminated cover. They will remain intact, depending on how much wind and rain you have encountered!

Wilderness - laminated, tear resistant and waterproof they are designed for use in wind and rain and should arrive home with you as a permanent souvenir.

Lam-Fold - extra strong lamination with a 'china-graph' write-on, wipe-off surface they are also tear resistant and waterproof. They are however, a little bulkier than the 'wilderness' version.

 
 thedalesway Suggestions  
The Wilderness Edition maps are a good compromise between the paper maps that are likely to self-destruct in the wind, rain, sleet & snow and the heavier duty Lam-Fold Editions.

 thedalesway Suggestions  
Our suggestion is to take along the Harvey strip map for simple route-finding but take along either the OS Landranger series maps for detailed route finding or to spread out while you're having your picnic or savouring a view.
