A circular walk close to Kirkbymoorside in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire. If you and your pooch enjoy a walk through charming canopied woodland paths and a romp through the fields nearby, then this one is for you. It's a slightly undulating walk to get the pulse moving, but is not too strenuous. In spring time this walk is full of bluebells, primroses and cowslips, a magical sight. The terrain is medium difficulty, with clear, well-maintained paths for most of the way and some uphill walking. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates but there are no stiles. You will also need to cross a ford across a stream which has shallow stepping stones but might require a bit of paddling through low level water, so good boots are a must. Most of the route is free from livestock, but you will cross one pasture towards the end of the walk. There are a couple of stretches walking along quiet lanes, so take care of traffic here. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

Beautiful walks through the woodlands. Your dog can be off the lead most of the time and suitable for kids.
