Walk 1 - Whisperdales

You’d probably be attracted to this place on the strength of it’s irresistible name alone and much of the route is indeed hushed by a floor of fallen leaves and pine needles, but the real attraction is the hidden valley descending into Hackness - it seems to lack a name, but it deserves a good one, better even than Whisperdales.

Walk 2 - Farndale

At any time other than spring, Farndale would be pleasant but unremarkable. Spring, when the Yorkshire winter allows it, brings out the daffodils and they take over the dale for a few happy weeks. To complete the circuit this route heads up onto the open moor for a pathless section, but you’ll have had your fill of daffodils (and people taking pics of daffodils) by then.

Walk 3 - The Bridestones & The Hole Of                                      

Horcum            

                                                             Everyone knows that all big holes in the ground were created by mineral extraction, meteorite strikes, or giants throwing rocks at each other. The Bridestones are huge, petrified fungi. Malo Cross was installed by the Americans at Fylingdales to ward off vampires coming down from Whitby for the weekend. All of these are facts because you just read them here.

Walk 4 - Cropton Forest

The two halves of this walk - moor and forest - are neatly split by the railway, the steam trains often heard but seldom glimpsed. Don’t get the idea that this is one of those dark, oppressive conifer forests though - there are plenty of gaps, buildings both intact and ruined and the occasional snake, even an occasional adder (much rarer than the common adder and very camera-shy).

North Yorks Moors

Walk 5 - Boggle Hole For a few hours either side of low tide, it is possible to walk along the beach from Boggle Hole to Robin Hood’s Bay. If you time it wrong, the cliff path is a fair, if crumbly, substitute. At the end, you have a choice - bridge or river? Cars don’t get a choice and really it should be no choice at all for walkers, with dry socks only minutes away. Walk 6 - Falling Foss For variety this, the shortest in the group, is probably the best. It is also surprisingly rough - the path up to John Bond’s Sheep House (a house made of, for and by sheep) having multiple stream crossings, only one of them aided, and that by a slippery plank. Sometimes you should just be grateful for the chance to edit your videos. Walk 7 - Chop Gate At last some proper pathless moorland walking to do, although the heather is mostly short and well managed and you have a TV transmitter to aim at. If it happens to be summer, you may well find yourself wishing that someone would manage the bracken - so lush and clingy is it that the only way to progress is to get angry and check for ticks afterwards. Walk 8 - Gowerdale and Thorodale There aren’t many peaks in the NYM’s, Hawnby Hill being one of the few and about as close to a ridge walk as you’ll get. Most of the walking is fast and easy and the river crossing is usually aided by a bridge - you don’t have to wade the river, unless it’s exceptionally hot and your feet are on fire and the bridge is being repaired. Walk 9 - Goathland Goathland gets many visitors, but this route only dips into the crowds at Mallyan Spout and the station (steam train arrival not guaranteed). Plenty of rain perks up the waterfalls, but it also perks up the mud - picking your way over boulders comes as a relief, assuming you still have your boots.

But keep it to yourself - nobody else seems to be interested.
