    Route Description for Clay Bank Top and Ingleby Incline Walk

    The walk along Clay Bank Top and the Ingleby Incline does involve a bit of strenuous exercise; however, the views from atop the barren landscape of the moors are spectacular and well worth the effort. Bring plenty of water, as well as water-resistant walking boots to better traverse the portions of the trail that are often boggy.

    Setting out from the car park, you will make your way to the south and climb uphill to access the vast, barren expanse of the moor. After taking in the beautiful views across North York Moors National Park, you will turn to the east to traverse the summit of Round Hill before making your way down the hillside along the Ingleby Incline.

    After reaching Greenhow Bottom, follow along the base of the hillside as it works to the west, passing through open fields and dense pockets of woodland terrain until you arrive back at the trailhead where you began.
