Leaping salmon and name on white discEsk Valley Walk

56 km / 35 miles

N Yorks
A route across the North York Moors from Castleton to the coast at Whitby, first following a loop on the moors to the south of Castleton, reaching the source of the River Esk. From Castleton the route leads to Danby Dale, Rosedale Head and Blakey Ridge. It then passes through the remains of Esklets, a medieval sheep farm, and on to Westerdale and, passing Castleton once more, Esk Dale proper. Next it reaches Danby, including the Moors Centre at Danby Lodge, and then climbs to Danby Beacon. From here it leads to Leaholm, Glaisdale, Egton Bridge and Grosmont, the terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The final section passes through Ruswarp to reach the end of the route at the old port of Whitby. There is a variety of countryside from open moorland to riverside pastures.
