As you leave North Leeds and head towards Otley, Skipton and the Lake District you pass the Chevin. Stop and enter this place. Your time will be well spent. Every tree you can name and more. Plants by the score. A lovely place to "wander as a cloud" ( ww). Peace and away from the busy City and noise. A... More

Whether you are young, old or inbetween, a hardened walker, or cyclist or just a beginner. Whether you want an easy walk or a longer more difficult one this is the place to visit. At this time of year wrap up well, it gets a bit fresh when at the surprise view. Views, did I mention the views, 360 degrees,... More

Views, challenging terrain, easy terrain, birdwatching, flora and fauna. Wonderful place for inspiring youngsters, and for running, walking, cycling, horse riding, orienteering, picnics and so much more. Try the Ramblers' Tea Rooms at the Cheerful Chilli for a good cuppa, coffee, and good food.

Fantastic views, very scenic. Can see for miles. A café halfway round with refreshments and snacks, very good service. Would recommend dog walking there. And if you're a DCI Banks fan, it was filmed there. :)

Quick walk through the woods to show my wife who'd never seen where I grew up, just as lovely a spot as it used to be. Wandered to the troll's bridge and took lovely photos in the Autumn sun.

Pulled into the car park to have a look after seeing the large sign from the road. IS THIS WHAT I ONCE KNEW AS DANEFIELD PARK? We used to come here a lot when the children were younger, there are plenty of paths to walk on and woodland to romp about in, great views over the valley from the bottom... More

I am very biased. I live in Otley, in the shadow of the Chevin. It is a great place for us urban walkers of all abilities. A previous review has complained it is really steep. Er, yes. It is a hill! It is a steep climb if you start from the town and go straight up, it is more manageable... More

I'm relatively unfit and I went here on a trip with friends from University. Around half of the class made it right to the top and said the view was spectacular. Some made it half way but a few of us almost made it half way - it was really steep so very tiring if you are unfit. The higher... More

Walking around the Chevin is one of the best ways to spend a sunny afternoon I've found. The views are breath-taking.
