Join Steven as he showcases the Hambleton Hills in North Yorkshire for this moderate but very rewarding circular on the western escarpments of the North York Moors high above the Vale of Mowbray.

This walk will visit several named rock features Whitestone Cliff, Boltby Scar, Ivy Scar, Roulston Scar and will be done at a moderate pace with plenty of stops.  There will also be several pauses to absorb the far reaching panorama with rural Yorkshire laid out below and on a clear day several landmarks can be spotted in the distance. 

The first part of the walk ascends steeply on steps to gain the high ground and continues with little change in elevation to pass the Yorkshire Gliding Club and continue to one of the finest views of England (as described by James Herriot) high up on Sutton Bank looking towards the Pennines.

After the gradual descent the second part continues along the slopes of the hills in woodland and pasture, by copses , ponds and by farms returning to the plateaux through thick woodland for another chance to admire the prospect this time looking south and then continuing in a loop for a refreshment stop before again joining up with the well defined wide managed path to the start.

The paths along the way are in the main very good , the ascents can be testing but they are not long climbs by any means.  There will be several stops spaced throughout the walk for refreshments one where we can purchase hot drinks from an outside kiosk.

So why not come meet the OutdoorLads and start Summer with a bounce over the North York Moors?
