Walks

This page will contain my collection of walks on the Moors. We now have fifty one walks from thirty starting points, including a collection of three walks from Osmotherley. Click on the green circles on the map to got to the walks, or pick a walk off the details list below.

We will also be putting general information about walking here, starting with the countryside code and access land.

Overview of walks

Green clickable markers show single walks, blue clickable markers show more than one walk starting at the same place.

The walk code is the grid reference of the start point. Circular Walks will contain little or no backtracking along the same paths.

Not every walk will be a circular route. There are some places on the Moors where a 'linear' (or 'there and back') walk is the best way to reach a particular viewpoint, or simply gets the best out of the views. Two examples of this will soon be coming up. My personal favourite is the walk along the route of the old Rosedale Railway across the head of Farndale. The five miles of the railway gives views down the length of Farndale, over into Westerdale, and across the head of Bransdale, as well as across some of the highest moors in the park. However, those very dales block any easy circular routes. Instead, walk along the railway for as long as you like, enjoying the views to the north and west, then on the way back appreciate the views down Farndale, and on a clear day out across the Wolds!

Paths: indicates walks that avoid all or most tarmaced roads.
Mostly Paths: will include some element of road walking at some point.
Mixed routes will include both paths and roads in equal measure.
Mostly roads will mostly keep to the roads but will include some cross country walking
Roads will avoid all or most footpaths and keep to the roads
