Clay Bank and Greenham Bottom Walk

The Clay Bank and Greenham Bottom Walk is a quick and relatively easy journey in the northwest corner of North York Moors National Park that provides amazing views of the surrounding landscape. While out walking the trail, you will pass through forest and open fields along a rugged hillside, before climbing further uphill along the edge of the moor for views of the barren landscape. This walk is fairly short; however, there are a number of climbs and descents throughout that will add a small amount of difficulty.

Route Description

If you are after a fairly short adventure, but one that packs in some fun terrain and scenic views of the North York Moors, then you will certainly want to experience all that the Clay Bank and Greenham Bottom Walk has to offer.

Setting out from the car park, you will head east and make your way through a tranquil stretch of forest, working through Greenhow Bottom around the base of the hill until you break free of the tree cover. From here, you will climb up the hillside towards the edge of the moor, where you will enjoy some amazing views of the surrounding landscape, including Roseberry Topping to the north. From the top of the hill, you will head to the west and descend the hillside to meet up with the road, following it to the north until you arrive back at the car park.
