Round Ryedale Walk
67 mile circular walk around the market towns of Ryedale

A new circular long-distance walking trail in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, linking five historic market towns. This 67-mile (108km) long-distance trail celebrates the glorious landscape of this district as well as the many traditional small villages, all offering a great Yorkshire welcome. Ryedale is well-known for its diverse landscapes and stunning contrasts, and that is brought to life on this tranquil journey. You will enjoy the peaceful fields and woodlands of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the patchwork of farmland in the Vale of Pickering and the dramatic southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, crossing the rivers and steep-sided woodland dales formed by glacial meltwater from the Ice Age.
