A circular walk around the countryside near Terrington in North Yorkshire. The route follows a beautiful high ridge through woodland and then with superb panoramic views. The short version of the route returns along the same ridge, while the full version of the route performs a loop down into the valley bottom. This walk is published through a collaboration with Howardian Hills AONB Partnership with the aim of providing countryside access for all in the Howardian Hills. The short version of the route follows a compacted stone vehicle track which is generally well-made with just the odd pot hole and some shallow surface mud. The track has only gentle slopes for the most part (estimated maximum gradient of 1:20 or 5%) with one 10 metre stretch that has a moderate slope (estimated gradient of 1:12 or 8%). There are no stiles, gates or steps on this version of the walk and it should be suitable for rugged pushchairs and rugged disability buggies for most of the year. Breakfree Surface and Slope Rating B1 (for majority of track) and B3 (for a 10 metre stretch). Allow 1 hour. The full version of the route follows a mixture of stone and unmade vehicle tracks, parts of which are deeply rutted. There are several long and steep slopes (maximum estimated gradient of 1:6 or 16%). You will need to negotiate two vehicle gates. You will cross one grass pasture which may be holding sheep so take particular care with dogs. Breakfree Surface and Slope Rating D5. Allow 1.5 hours. There is one bench along the route, just a simple large log set on the ground, which is located at the turning point of the short version. There are no facilities on the route. If you are looking for refreshments, you will find Terrington Village Stores and Tea Rooms (which has indoor and outdoor tables) in nearby Terrington village. This walk follows public rights of way through public and private land. Please show respect for landowners and other visitors and remember the Countryside Code.

Nice walk through open countryside, the full walk is on gravel farm roads with no traffic so great for winter or wet days
