The Headwaters Trail is a bikepacking adventure by gravel or mountain bike on old drovers lanes, bridleways and greenways into the heart of an often overlooked part of Yorkshire.
The trail takes you on a 350km circular route over Pennine moors where the three rivers that powered the first cotton mills and coal mines of the Industrial Revolution have their source - the head of the waters of the Calder, Aire and Don - and out over a diverse landscape with its woodlands, moorlands and farmland.
The route also visits busy market towns like Skipton, Penistone and Marsden whilst passing through the center of Leeds. The route is approximately 80% 'off-road'.
This circular route takes you through Hebden Bridge, over the moors to Malham Tarn where it turns south to pass through Skipton and out along the ridge above the Aire valley with its hidden gravel singletrack. The return leg is via traffic free greenways and quality gravel trails on canal towpaths and reclaimed railway lines that cross the broad floodplain to Castleford and Elsecar before ace trails in Wharncliffe woods and back across the Pennine moors to the finish line in Mytholmroyd. The trail has 5,200 meters of climbing.
