Goathland and Mallyan Spout Walk Description

If you are after a fairly quick and relatively easy way to experience some stunning sights in the North York Moors, then look no further than the Goathland and Mallyan Spout Walk. Featuring a charming village that was used as a set on the TV show “Heartbeat”, as well as a gushing waterfall and picturesque countryside, this is an amazing adventure that should definitely be sought out if you are in the area. There are some fairly rough sections along the trail, so make sure to wear proper walking boots.

Setting out from the car park, you will head to the southwest and make your way through the village of Goathland, admiring its charming streets and quaint cottages. From here, you will descend a valley and head through the forest, clambering over a stretch of rocky and slippery terrain to reach the beautiful sight of the Mallyan Spout waterfall. Continue along the trail as it follows along the winding banks of the West Beck River to eventually meet up with the old rail line. Follow this to the southwest in order to make your way back to the trailhead.
