Walks in North Yorkshire
North Yorkshire is a massive county, and as such it contains some truly beautiful landscapes - the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales lie fully or partly within the county's borders. There is a short but beautiful patch of coastline that includes some picturesque towns and villages, including Whitby, Staithes, Ilkley, Grassington and many more.
As can be expected, it is a walker's paradise. Many trails pass through the county - the Pennine Way tickles its western edge, whilst the Dales Way starts its journey in Ilkley. Part of the Cleveland Way runs along the coast. It features some beautiful lowland walking and some hard, unyielding moorland. The latter can be unforgiving places in poor weather.
It is truly a jewel of a county, and one that does not get the attention it deserves in comparison with the Derbysire Peaks or the Cumbrian Lakes.
Below is a map showing all the walks that I have completed in North Yorkshire.
