North York Moors National Park
For a memorable walk, trace the course of the defunct Rosedale Railway over the moors from Rosedale to Ingleby Greenhow. These high moors are home to a variety of birdlife, including curlews, golden plovers, and merlins.
Moors Centre (Danby) - information centre for the park, with 13 acres of woods and meadow walks.
Esk Valley Walk - 33 mile trail between Farndale Moor and Whitby following the route of the Esk Valley railway and the Esk river to the sea.
Ravenscar Geological Trail - walks of 2.5 and 4.5 miles following the course of the Peak Fault, past disused alum quarries. The area is rich in fossils.
Rievaulx Abbey - this extremely popular medieval abbey sits in woodland bisected by 12 lovely walks.
Hayburn Wyke (Staintondale) - path beside Thorny Beck, with its series of waterfalls, through a nature reserve to the sea.
