Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Yorkshire Dales, noted for its picturesque landscapes also has an abundance of Roman history. Of which, roads are included. Cam High Road is one such road. At 5.5 miles (8.9km) long, the gravel remains make for a tricky but worth while ascent. Running south-west from Bainbridge over Dodd Fell, the ‘straight as an arrow’ road leads to a fort previously occupied by legions between the early 2nd and the late 4th centuries. The remains are minimal. However, the road is a gravel adventurers dream.

A great hardpacked road either way you ride it. A tough ascent that will have you gasping for air or a fast downhill that will have you smiling all the way. A brilliant trail.
