Route Description

If you are looking to experience the North York Moors packaged into one relatively short adventure, then you will want to give the Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham Walk a try. Located near the south of North York Moors National Park, you will experience the striking moorland terrain, sprawling fields, and charming villages that make this region so beautiful. Don’t forget to wear proper walking boots, as some of the terrain here can be uneven underfoot.

Setting out from the car park, you will make your way south through the village of Hutton-le-Hole, before heading to the northeast through the open countryside. After a brief spell along the road, you will climb slightly uphill across the moor and take in the beautiful views of the rugged terrain surrounding you.

Reaching the northeasternmost point of the route, you will turn to the south to pass through the charming village of Lastingham, eventually climbing up the forested hillside to reach Spaunton. From here, you will make your way west across the picturesque fields before making your descent off the hillside back into Hutton-le-Hole.
