Explorer Map OL27, - North York Moors (East Area)

This is a very "straightforward" walk, which doesn't really need any maps.
The walk starts from the North York Moors car park at Grosmont
From Grosmont, the Rail Trail is followed from just past the NYM Railway station to where the footbridge crosses the Murk Esk.
At this point there is a footpath beside the Eller Beck that takes you to Beck Hole.
The return from Beck Hole is along the Rail Trail to Grosmont.
