Route Outline

The last 4 miles of this North York Moors walk across White Moor then Wheeldale Moor, where there are remarkably few rights of way, adds a sense of isolation to this route which is heightened by the fact that you walk this four miles, not on a shooting track or a flagged footpath, but rather, on a simple walkers' path across the open-access moorland. Coming south from Egton Bridge there is a reasonable amount of off road parking just after the Wheeldale Bridge river ford at SE801968. Walk south on the Keys Beck road to the ford over the Keys Beck then turn off right into Cropton Forest on the forest track.
