The North York Moors
50 walks in the National Park
Guidebook describing 50 varied walks in England's beautiful North York Moors National Park. Showcasing the region's sweeping moorlands, sheltered valleys, woodlands and cliff coasts, routes range from short and easy low-level walks to long and strenuous routes across the high moors, including the Lyke Wake Walk.
Spring and autumn are quiet, with good weather. The heather moorlands turn purple in summer, and it can be busy. Winter weather is harsh, with the moorlands becoming soaked or covered in deep snow.
Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough, Pickering, Helmsley, Hutton-le-Hole, Bilsdale, Osmotherley, Great Ayton, Guisborough, Eskdale and Goathland.
Varied walks from 4 to 13½ miles. Terrain includes exposed moorlands, sheltered valleys, woodlands, forests and cliff coasts. No special equipment is needed on the lower, easier walks, but walkers need to be prepared for bad weather on the higher, longer and more exposed moorland walks, where good navigation is also required.
High heather moorlands, verdant dales and cliff coastline. Bustling towns and pretty villages. Abbeys, castles, prehistoric remains, industrial archaeology and interesting museums. The Lyke Wake Walk, Cleveland Way and interesting old railway paths.
Guidebook to 50 walks in the North York Moors National Park. The walks, which range from 4 to 13 miles, are distributed through seven regions within the park, enabling walkers to discover and appreciate the Tabular Hills, Hambleton Hills, Cleveland Hills, Northern Moors, High Moors, Eastern Moors and Cleveland Coast. For those who like a challenge, the course of the classic Lyke Wake Walk, crossing the national park from east to west, is also described.
For each walk (most of which are circular), step-by-step route description is accompanied by extracts of OS mapping. Points of interest are highlighted, and background information provided, detailing the history and industry of the area. The guidebook also includes planning and preparation details such as when to go, where to stay, and how to get around using public transport.
Comprising the largest continuous expanse of heather moorland in England, the North York Moors offer a wonderful sense of spaciousness, with extensive views under a 'big sky'. People have crossed the North York Moors since time immemorial and some of their routes survive to this day. It is a place of great history and undeniable charm, making it a worthy walking destination.
