Join Steven, Dave and the OutdoorLads on the first of three linear day walk events exploring the North York Moors and following the long distance trail 'The White Rose Walk'.

This walk coincides almost in it's entirety with the Cleveland Way long distance path.

The walk only has one steep climb at the start of the day and then undulates along the western escarpment of the Hambleton Hills (Ivy Scar/ Roulston Scar/ Whitestone Cliff/ Boltby Scar) on very clearly defined paths and tracks, visiting several viewpoints of note including the favoured spot of J M W Turner near Sutton Bank.

There will be a few stops for food, drink ,rest and to take photographs so progress will be steady but not rushed.

The Hambleton Drove Road features for about half of this walk and easy progress is made across moor, through coniferous forest and upland grasslands.

After the descent from Black Hambleton the views towards Osmotherley and Oakdale open up before the last short rise and gradual fall to the start point.

If you would like to do as part of a three day trek rather than just a day walk please click here for detail for day two and here for the third and final day.
