10.2 miles

Explorer Map OL26, - North York Moors (Western Area)

A year round walk, starting in the plantation of Silton Forest then following the Hambleton Street track (part of the Cleveland Way), before decsending to Cowesby and Kepwick.
Navigation is very straightforward.
There is a modest ascent up to the Hambleton Street track, and a fairly steep path down to Cowesby and Kepwick.
However, there is nothing to prevent an enjoyable day out rambling in some superb countryside.
