12  walkers set out from Hebden with an initial climb onto edge top via Care Scar, we followed the track over Mossy Moor passing Mossy Moor Reservoir. Coffee stop at the base of  Bolton Hawe Side gave us great views all around. We followed the line of Hebden Beck up to the start of the Leadmining Trail which gave us the opportunity to read up on the various operations of Leadmining in the past. We continued onwards to Yarnbury and onto a bridleway track leading to Bare House where we stopped for lunch. Downhill all the way after lunch following open fields to arrive at the centre of Grassington for an Ice Cream stop. We headed down to the River Wharfe and Linton Falls where we turned left to follow the river all the way back to Hebden.
