New walks around Northallerton
In a joint initiative with Northallerton Ramblers, we have created five new short family walks. The walks are designed to encourage walking locally without the need for a car to get to the start. See the Hambleton district section for the new walks.
Local circular walks
North Yorkshire has more than 10,000km of public rights of way, offering many short walks and day walks.
The county includes two national parks, two areas of outstanding natural beauty, wild moors, rolling hills and rugged coastline.
Long distance walks also cover parts of the county. These can take days to complete but shorter sections can be walked in a day.
When setting out on a walk, ensure you have a map, suitable clothing and food and water. Check the weather and let someone know your plans. For a safe and responsible experience, follow the countryside code and safety leaflet [2Mb].
