Join Steven and the OutdoorLads for a late afternoon/ evening stroll on the edge of the North York Moors National Park.

This walk will be done at a more relaxed pace with several stops along the way and visits a castle and church ruins, weaving in an out of woodland on good clear paths.

The route coincides at one point with three challenge hikes The Lyke Wake Walk, The Cleveland Way and The Coast to Coast Walk.

There is a small gradual rise for a decent prospect north to reveal extensive views along the Cleveland Hills and north into County Durham.

The route uses  quiet lanes, bridleways and footpaths over pasture briefly dipping in to the lower reaches of Scugdale.  There is plenty of bird life in this area and roe deer are often seen at quieter times of the day. 

At the end there are a number of pubs in the area to congregate for a post walk drink in a beer garden.

As an introduction walk and a more sociable slower paced event ideal for those who may work on the weekend this is an opportunity to experience walking with the group.

So add yourself on to this event I look forward to having a chat.
