A short walk from the famous village of Goathland in the heart of the North York Moors. The walk gives you chance to explore the village itself (made famous as the set of TV drama "Heartbeat") then descends into the valley to visit the Mallyan Spout waterfall and an enchanting stretch of the West Beck river before joining a section of the old railway for the climb back to the village. There are several climbs and descents throughout (including long flights of steps) and to reach the Mallyan Spout waterfall you will need to scramble over a few hundred yards of rocks and boulders which can be very slippery so sturdy waterproof footwear is a must. There are no stiles, just a few gates. You will be sharing some of the paths with sheep so keep dogs under close control. There are toilets alongside the car park at the start of the walk. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
