Directions to Trailhead

Walking the Ingleby Incline is a fun and scenic, but challenging, adventure in North York Moors National Park that will take you on a lengthy climb uphill for views of the moor. While the trail is well-maintained, it does feature one long incline that is a real leg-burner and will be unsuitable for some walkers. Even still, this is an amazing walk to get you out for a spot of exercise while taking in the natural beauty of the park.

Route Description

If you are looking for a beautifully scenic walking route that will also get your heartrate up and leave your legs burning, then the Ingleby Incline Walk is the perfect trail for you. This trail follows a quiet country road before climbing up a long incline to reach the moors, where you will enjoy stunning views across North Yorkshire. There is also a relatively steep descent towards the end of the walk, so be sure to wear proper walking boots with good ankle support.

Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the south along the road as it runs alongside a woodland plantation on your left and fields on your right. Eventually, you will branch off to the southeast and begin the long and steep climb uphill that will bring you to the moor. Take your time through this stretch, as it really is quite long.

Reaching the top of the hillside at the Bloworth Crossing, you will turn to the northwest and enjoy a bit of respite along the fairly flat terrain of the moor. Take some time to appreciate the views, before turning to the west for the steep descent that will lead you through a forest on the way back to the trailhead.
