Join Steven and the OutdoorLads in the far north of the North York Moors National Park for a good day out on the hills and around the hidden valley of Scugdale.

This is a good varied walk taking in pasture, woodland and moorland in a quieter part of the area and using easy gradients to arrive at a moorland summit.

The area has plentiful birdlife, buzzards soar above, roe deer wander quietly in the native woodland copses and herds of highland cattle graze the meadows.

The walk first gradually rises around an outlying hill on to a quiet country lane and into plantations before rising steadily to an ancient cairn and then along the edge of the moorland escarpment. 

The route then descends rapidly to another well managed path revealing views of the adjacent valley of Raisdale before avoiding rocks and boulders to reach the far reaches of the beautiful  peaceful Scugdale valley.   A gradual descent leads to a very quiet lane that winds gradually downhill beside a stream eventually leading back to the Cleveland Way and eventually to the start point.

So if you would like to join a small group and explore this quieter part of the North York Moors come and join Steven and stretch them legs.
