Why you should do this walk…

TEMPORARY CLOSURE NOTICE MAY 2018: Part of the riverside path (about 150 yards) used for this route is currently closed for safety reasons, due to land movement. The path is due to reopen in April 2019 and we will remove this notice once the route is open.

A 4 mile circular walk from the village of Lower Dunsforth, near to Aldborough in North Yorkshire. This walk is great if you are after a relaxing riverside walk (perhaps where your dog can easily have a paddle or a swim). The countryside around the River Ure and Lower Dunsforth is gently undulating, so if you are not up for lots of energetic climbing this is perfect. It’s also very pretty.

Dog friendly?…

The terrain is fairly easy going, on quiet roads, through fields and by the riverside on grassy paths. You will need to negotiate several gates plus 7 stiles. Whilst about half of the stiles have adjacent dog gates, dogs will probably need a lift over some of the others. You are likely to come across cattle and sheep in some of the fields. A few of the narrower sections can get a bit overgrown.

    Did this walk today – description very clear and easy to follow. Encountered a few very friendly cows who didnt want to let us into their field but they eventually moved on. The pub in Lower Dunsforth does wonderful food and was very welcoming to our muddy boots and dog so no need to drive further afield.

      oh and footbridge picture above is now on an angle and looks scary but supported mine and hubby’s weight without moving so seems stable enough

    I did this walk 3rd of August with a two legged and four legged friend and this walk seems to fallen into disrepair. It was very over grown to the point where it was difficult to negotiate some parts. A branch has fall across the path and a style was broken. It looked like it was not being walked and have not been for some time. What it needs is cutting back and some small repairs – and to be used!
