Length: 10.6 mi • Est. 5 h 5 m
Parking is available at Danes Dyke car park for £2.90 all day. This stunning trail hugs the coast along the cliffs of the village of Flamborough. This loop can easily be made shorter by using trails and country roads that intersect along various points along the way. There are many places on the route to park and begin the journey, and you can always make this an out and back by turning around and heading back to where you parked. Please note that on the route featured here, you will be required to walk through town all the way across Flamborogh on a mix of roads and pedestrian paths to return to your point of origin.Show more

Leaving Pocklington you head to Allerthorpe before turning right for the Common. A lovely trek through the woodland before turning right onto the road. After a while you'll turn right and follow a path along field edges before crossing a wooden foot bridge taking you to the canal path. Turn right onto the path and follow this all the way to the canal head. Crossing the main road you'll then take a country lane back to Pocklington. A flat but long hike which offers a number of different habitats and wildlife. Show more

Length: 3.1 mi • Est. 1 h 36 m
A circular walk in East Yorkshire that climbs gently through woodland to Welton Wold and returns along the dry valley of Welton Dale. The village has many interesting features that you can read about on the display board near the start of the walk. Local folklore states that Dick Turpin was arrested here in Welton, before trial and execution in York. The paths are generally wide with good surfaces but the short section at the furthest point may be muddy and difficult after rain. This section could be avoided by using the concrete farm road that runs parallel to the footpath/bridleway here. There are three kissing gates, but no stiles on the walk. The Dale is used for livestock, which mostly keeps to the valley sides rather than the bottom. Allow 1.5 hours.Show more

Length: 5.4 mi • Est. 2 h 34 m
A circular walk from Huggate that passes through dry valleys created around 18,000 years ago at the end of the Ice Age. These valleys, known locally as dales, are one of the highlights of the Yorkshire Wolds and lie between largely arable fields. The first half of the walk follows the Yorkshire Wolds Way and passes the Huggate Poetry Bench, one of several art works created for the WANDER project. There are some moderately steep descents and ascents into and out of the dales, and the paths are a mixture of field edges and tarmac drives. There are kissing gates and field gates on the route, but no stiles. One field is marked as a bull field and horses may be present in another (a road detour can avoid the horses). Allow three hours to enjoy the tranquility of the dales.Show more

A circular walk around Flamborough a village in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, north-east of Bridlington town centre on the prominent coastal feature of Flamborough Head. This short circular walk takes you on a mini-tour of one of the most spectacular areas of chalk cliffs in Britain. If you love coastal walks, stunning scenery and lighthouses, and want your dog to be able to have a good run too, then this exhilarating walk might just be the one for you. The terrain is fairly easy, following clear grassy paths and then ending along a quiet road. There are no stiles or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate a footbridge and a flight of wooden steps. Remember to keep children close and dogs under close control on the sections close to the cliff edge. Allow 1.5 hours. Show more

A lovely hike but can be demanding - especially in hot weather. It can be completed in either direction providing different views of the gorgeous countryside. From valleys to woods and open paths this hike is a rewarding experience. There are some steep sections. The route is clear and dog friendly but be mindful of sheep and there maybe some cows too which we saw in one field but weren't a problem. Recommended.Show more

Length: 5.0 mi • Est. 2 h 58 m
A circular walk from the village of Millington in the Yorkshire Wolds. This walk has it all, a pretty village, dog-friendly pub, a real feeling of wide open space and plenty of green paths, fields and lanes (ideal for some canine romping). A couple of steady climbs reward the walker with stunning views of the Yorkshire Wolds. The route has some steady climbs and some road walking along lanes with wide grass verges. The vast majority of the walk is over wide, grassy paths. You will need to negotiate some boardwalks, gates and stiles (all with dog gates) and you may also encounter cattle in a couple of fields. Allow 2.5 hours.Show more
