After dropping our 2 youngest daughters at Leeds Bradford airport, we were searching for dog walking options. We fell upon this wonderful place; so many paths, a whole day of options. Would be wonderful children, our dog definitely enjoyed her Sunday afternoon

There is normally an Ice Cream van in the Car Park at the top. Very Dog Friendly but be aware there are a few spots... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Leeds this is worth a visit. It has lots of different length walks for different fitness levels.

Brilliant walks, great views, free parking and on our doorstep. What more could you want? We took the Geology Trail this time which was hard work but well worth it

There is a large car park here at the top and plenty of space to explore and walk with families and dogs...Not good terrain for those with walking... More

You can get to the Chevin by foot from the town centre if you're reasonably fit. It's quite a steep climb! Otherwise, there are 3 car parks off East Chevin Road to choose from. Practically the whole of the Chevin is public space - owned and managed by Leeds City Council. It's a really fab place for a walk, picnic... More

Gorgeous place to walk. Beautiful views from each and every side. Great for the whole family, with some routes more difficult than others. Perhaps not the best lit area come evening but all same, very safe and easy to get to. Plenty of parking and like I said outstanding views. Come here with your romantic head, with the sunset with...
