County/Area - East Yorkshire & North Yorkshire

Length - 8.5 miles / 13.8 km

Grade - moderate

This walk includes all the typical features of the Yorkshire Wolds, an extensive limestone plateau interlaced with secluded, narrow, twisting dales. It starts by making use of three linking dales to come out onto the plateau where there are views from the scarp edge over the Vale of York and, as the plateau is crossed, views down into other dales and eventually across the Humber into Lincolnshire. The return makes use of another dale, a stretch of Roman road, and an old drove way. A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).
