path through Tripsdale on the NYM……..anyone?
Don’t know about BW from Seave Green but I seem to remember Medd Crag along the earthworks to the main track is ok. The big drop & climb out of Tripsdale is a wide sandy track. Across Slape Moor to BW split – LH steep or right along Bransdale Ridge to road & then left down road/bw to Cockayne

The climb from Seave Green gets very steep in places in the woods (East Bank Plantation), but the surface is generally OK, we usually use it as a quick but painful way of getting some height out of Chop Gate. The last bit from the woods to the track on Urra moor is a definite push – steep & tussocky grass.Posted 5 years ago
Tracks in Swaledale are in surprisingly good nick after nearly 35mm of rain on Friday alone! According to the Dales Bike Centre weather wotsit there has been 590mm of the stuff so far this year – must be all those lead mines draining it away 😯

just to let anyone intersted know, i tried to get to tripsdale this afternoon…with my leccy bike.Posted 5 years ago
from seave green, i went up the b/w that takes you up to the woods (east bank plantation), i made it halfway through before the surface (slippy/muddy) and my inhability to push the hefty bike up forced me to retreat.
i then went for the next b/w north of the woods. i managed to ride all the way up to the last gate before the earthworks….but the steepness forced me to push the last 200 meters (left me fubared)
i then followed the b/w east to the 1st junction and followed the b/w across urra moor, and down the steep cobbled steppy descent to the road. it was very nice for a couple of hours exploring.
