Few places in the UK can top the county for stunning scenery, with miles of glorious countryside to explore. If you are keen to make the most of the weather and spend some time outdoors, there are a number of beautiful walking routes around the North York Moors National Park awaiting to be enjoyed on foot. Here are some of the best routes to take for an outdoor adventure.
5. Rievaulx Abbey
Enjoy a 6.5-mile walk from the market town of Hemsley in the North York Moors National Park to the impressive ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, which was one of England's most powerful Cistercian monasteries.
6. Runswick Bay
Take a pleasant two mile stroll along the clifftop of Runswick Bay and take in the wonderful coastal views along the route, following the Cleveland Way National Trail as it heads north towards Staithes.
7. Howdale Moor and Brow Moor
Head off on a circular four-mile along the moors where you’ll be exposed to some of the best landscapes of the National Park, from heather moorland to the dramatic views of the Ravenscar coastline that looks out to Robin Hood’s Bay.
Enjoy a short circular walk around Ravenscar and enjoy spectacular coastal views from the sheer cliffs, or take the more challenging 11-mile walk through the moorlands, down the old Scarborough to Whitby railway line, before arriving at Robin Hood’s Bay.
