Why you should do this walk…
A 5.5 mile circular walk through the ancient Raincliffe Woods on the edge of the North York Moors. The walk meanders though beautiful ancient woodlands along mostly dirt tracks that can get very muddy in wet weather. There are no stiles and the walk includes several climbs and descents, one climb being fairly steep.

Raincliffe Woods has been described as the “the creme de la creme of woodland” by the Woodland Trust and comprises more that 400 acres of open access mainly deciduous woodlands. The woods are designated as Planted Ancient Woodland with some areas of Ancient Semi Natural Woodland. The woods are home to a very large range of native trees with some management to remove unwanted species from the area. In June, when the walk was completed, the paths were surrounded by a wide variety of wild flowers including bluebells and wild garlic.
