Short Walks in the North York Moors

Short Walks in the North York Moors

by: Brian Spencer
This full colour guidebook contains 20 easy walks of 5 miles or less within the North York Moors National Park. This scenic area contains stunning moorland, spectacular coast, ancient woodland, and historic sites. The guide is one of a series produced in cooperation with the Ramblers and features full colour OS Explorer mapping, making route finding straightforward.

The book begins with a useful introductory chapter describing the region including its geology and wildlife and outlining the walking highlights and practicalities. Each walk chapter gives a short descriptive overview followed by detailed route finding instructions. A side panel provides practical information including distance, time, terrain, and starting grid reference.
