The Lealholm and Great Fryup Dale walk in the North York Moors

South-west from Lealholm to Prospect House in Great Fryup Dale, then further south-west to Yew Grain Scar by way of Cut Road on Glaisdale Moor. North via Wood End Farm to Stonebeck Gate Farm, and finally north-east through Little Fryup Dale back to Lealholm. A 13-mile walk in the North York Moors.


The best map to use on this walk is the Ordnance Survey map of the North York Moors Eastern Area, reference OS Explorer OL27, scale 1:25,000. It clearly displays footpaths, rights of way, open access land and vegetation on the ground, making it ideal for walking, running and hiking. The map can be purchased from Amazon in either a standard, paper version or a weatherproof, laminated version, as shown below.
