Barningham Trail

39 km / 24 miles

Ed Coles has devised the Barningham Trail, a circular linking the southern slopes of Teesdale with Arkengarthdale, crossing moorland and forest and having both airy views and hidden valleys along its route. It zig-zags over Barningham Moor then climbs over the watershed to enter the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A long climb back up-and-over brings you to Stang Forest before returning to Barningham.
