The Limey Way is a 65-kilometre Challenge walk through Derbyshire, England. It starts at Castleton and progesses through 15 major and 5 minor limestone dales to reach the River Dove and Dovedale, the walk's end.

The walk was first described in the 1960s and a Challenge Recorder was appointed: all persons who submitted a full verified account received a woven badge. The walk was later superseded by the Derbyshire Council's own walk, the Limestone Way, which uses the route of the Limey Way down to Thorpe and adds some extra mileage.


The path follows the Derbyshire dales from one into another along the route and in its later stages includes some of the Tissington Trail.
