You can see where the rights of way in North Yorkshire are on our online mapping service. The data on this map is for information only, it is not an extract of the Definitive Map and should not be relied on for determining the position or alignment of any public right of way. Please also note that just because a path is not shown on this map does not mean that a right of way does not exist, as there may be paths that have been used by the public for many years and so have acquired public rights, but that are not recorded on the Definitive Map. If you would like to know more details about the alignment of a particular right of way please contact the Definitive Map Team.
This map shows public rights of way in the whole of the county, including the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. If you have any queries or issues with paths in the National Parks please contact the Rights of Way teams in the relevant National Park Authority.
