Why you should do this walk…

A 3 mile circular woodland walk within Dalby Forest, near Thornton-le-Dale in North Yorkshire. Dalby Forest sits on the southern slopes of the North York Moors and forms part of the North Riding Forest Park. It is managed for timber production and recreation, with well-maintained trails for walkers and cyclists. This waymarked loop takes you on a journey through the forest following lanes and paths, starting at the beautiful Staindale Lake, climbing to enjoy views across the moors and then descending to enjoy a magical stretch through the valley.

Dog friendly?…

The majority of the route follows surfaced forest access tracks, but there are a couple of unmade woodland paths that can get muddy plus one descent through a rocky ravine that is uneven and can be slippery. There are no stiles or gates on route, but you will need to negotiate some steps, fence gaps plus two staggered barriers. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock, but watch out for cyclists and occasional vehicles on the forest lanes. Dogs are welcome in Dalby Forest and this route makes an ideal dog walk, with plenty of space for well-behaved dogs to stretch their legs. Allow 1.5 hours.
