Exploring the Yorkshire Dales
The aim of the free walks is to help the public understand their new rights under the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act 2000, which came into force in the area in 2005.
It increased the area of open access in the park from four per cent to 62 per cent.
Ranger services manager Alan Hulme said: “The walks are a chance for people to exercise their new rights by exploring new areas of the National Park and, at the same time, learning more about its special qualities.
“They will be shown around by the relevant area ranger who has an intimate knowledge of the particular section and can explain the work of the ranger service.”
