Overview

This guidebook offers 50 walks in the North York Moors National Park, enabling walkers to discover the Tabular Hills, Hambleton Hills, Cleveland Hills, Northern Moors, High Moors, Eastern Moors and Cleveland Coast. There are almost 750km (465 miles) of walking routes described throughout this book, in routes ranging between 4 and 14 miles long, though the North York Moors could easily furnish many more splendid and enjoyable routes. 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 as it stretches across the national park from east to west. 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.
