Otley Chevin Forest Park

Otley Chevin Forest Park is about 10 miles north-west of Leeds City Centre. Otley Chevin is a cliff that rises steeply from the Yorkshire market town of Otley in West Yorkshire. The River Wharfe can be seen in the valley and on a clear day you can see for miles. The highest point of Otley Chevin reaches 282 metres and as well as fantastic views it’s a great place to walk your dog or explore the woodland and heathland. There are several walks with easy to follow footpaths along The Chevin and The Dales Way uns through the area.

There is a good car park at Surprise View and you will find The Royalty Pub just across the road from the car park if you need food or refreshments.

I recently visited Otley Chevin at sunset and took this photograph.
