Why you should do this walk…
A 5 mile circular walk from the village of Coxwold in North Yorkshire. This is a good, energetic romp through some beautiful (but little used) countryside, starting and finishing in the historic village of Coxwold. The Vale of York may be relatively flat, but that doesn’t mean the walk is boring – it’s charming with great views of the majestic White Horse at Kilburn all the along the walk.
The terrain is moderate, mostly level with just some gentle slopes. The surfaces are mostly grassy paths through fields and on farm tracks plus a very small section of road walking. The field paths can be wild and overgrown at times and some of the waymarkers may be missing, so the live GPS map on the iFootpath App will be particularly helpful for navigation. There are a few stiles (some of which dogs would need a lift over) and little footbridges to negotiate. You are likely to come across horses or cattle in a few of the fields (as the paths are little-used, the livestock can be reactive so take extra care).
