The Cropton Round Walk
Walking the Cropton Round is a great activity in the North York Moors that features a variety of terrain and is suitable for walkers of almost every skill level. While out on the trail, you will traverse the open countryside before passing through a charming stretch of woodland terrain along the River Seven, enjoying fairly flat terrain except for the one steep climb towards the end of the walk. While this trail offers a number of opportunities for off-leash dog walking, you will need to exercise caution in areas where livestock are present.

Route Description for The Cropton Round Walk
If you enjoy relaxing forest walks that are complimented by sweeping views across the picturesque English countryside, then The Cropton Round Walk will be a fantastic option to get you onto the trail and enjoying the outdoors. There is a small amount of elevation gain along the route, as well as some varied terrain, so be sure to wear proper footwear.
Setting out from the trailhead in Cropton, you will head south along the road and past The New Inn, bearing right shortly after it in order to cut across the open countryside.
