Where To Walk In Yorkshire

Written by Kirsty Jones on

Hardraw Force

Walking around Yorkshire is a great activity to do all year round but there’s something about walking in summer that makes exploring all that Yorkshire has to offer particularly lovely. So here are two of our favourite walks when out and about in Yorkshire, next month we will pick another two so stay tuned!

1. Dalby Forest
The forest is a beautiful place to go walking, situated on the southern part of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park it has a lovely array of habitats. The visitor centre in the Forest prides itself on being eco-friendly which means the animals in the surrounding area needn’t worry about a big monster building disturbing their home. There’s a great selection of walks in the forest ranging from easy routes like the Crosscliff View Trail, medium on the Dalby Beck Walk and demanding on the Deepdale Habitat Trial, so there’s sure to be something to suit all abilities.

2. Walk to Hardraw Force from Hawes
From the village of Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales you will find a lovely walk that will take you the highest single drop waterfall in England. The trial is 5 miles long and will take you around 2 and ½ hours at a good pace, you will be walking through fields and moorland paths so it will be around medium difficulty but it’s a great countryside walk. The actual waterfall is found within the grounds of the Green Dragon Inn. The beautiful sight is open daily from 8am in summer and 10pm in winter, entry is £2.50 per adult and £1.50 per child with under 5’s going free. It really is an amazing sight to see so it’s definitely worth the small fee and walking from Hawes makes for a fabulous day of it.

These two walks can suit people of all abilities and ages and that’s what we want to do in this section. If you have any walks that you love doing either tweet us or Facebook us and we can get it featured on our monthly Yorkshire walks segment.
