Looking towards Heptonstall Moor,<br /> West Yorkshire, England

Near Hebden Bridge, the Pennine Way crosses Calderdale and navigational caution is needed due the rat's nest of public footpaths on the northern side of the valley. As it happens, the trail takes its time reaching wilder country like that which you see above. In fact, you could say that the Pennine Way gets into wilder and wilder terrain, the further north that you continue on its length. That is something that poses challenges for public transport users like me and I might end up undertaking multi-day hikes like what I recently did along the West Highland Way.
