Overview

This guidebook offers 50 walks in seven regions throughout the North York Moors National Park, enabling walkers to discover and appreciate in turn the Tabular Hills, Hambleton Hills, Cleveland Hills, Northern Moors, High Moors, Eastern Moors and Cleveland Coast. For those walkers who like to rise to a challenge, the course of the classic Lyke Wake Walk is also offered, split over a four-day period to allow a more leisurely appreciation of the moors as it stretches across the national park from east to west. There are almost 750km (465 miles) of walking routes described throughout this book, though the North York Moors could easily furnish many more splendid and enjoyable routes. The North York Moors National Park is broad, bleak and barren, displaying the largest continuous expanse of heather moorland in England. The moors offer a great sense of spaciousness, with extensive views under a 'big sky', but there are also dozens of deep, verdant dales full of charming scenes and hoary stone buildings, as well as a remarkable cliff coastline designated as Heritage Coast.
