Lovely trail. Lots of wild life. Good cafe half way through

Great walk, though part of it is on the road which can be busy.

very nice, clear water

Great walk, did in about 2hours. Ideal having a cafe at the end after an incline! Really good views and a variety of terrain making it an interesting & varied route. Will do again!

Great views from the top!

Short, but hard going to the top! Well worth the view.

Hi Another lovely walk instructions spot on again also the esk valley walk from castleton to grosmont is also very nice there are plenty of animals en-route and its close to railway and river esk regards bailes

excellent walk. Car parking is expensive (even National Trust members) and limited. It's possible to park at Capt. Cooks monument and walk across to Roseberry Topping making it a longer but a more enjoyable walk (parking is free too ;) )

My first walk too. You can make it longer by going round the next earth works field and we did. Beautiful, easy, gentle walk.

Don’t be put off when signpost shows Esk Valley.

The slippery downhill stretch mentioned at point two really is treacherous when muddy and extreme care should be taken.

A great walk,we walked out from Goathland over the moors on the opposite side of the valley and then followed this route back.

Lovely walk that is quite challenging. Some areas are quite remote and navigation is quite difficult as not all the paths are clearly signed as footpaths. (I would suggest using the app so that you can check the live map and make sure you are still on the right track.)

I liked every part of this walk from the riverside path and the climb to Raven Scar to the magnificent views near the end of the walk. We were lucky enough to see the fountain too. It's easy to imagine how wonderful this must have been to visitors when it was originally built.

We really enjoyed this short walk as it helped us work up an appetite ready to visit and enjoy one of the numerous fab eating places in Skipton. Our dog enjoyed a dip in the beck too - so an all round a good experience.
