Recent changes to Public Paths
The rights of way network is continually evolving. During any year, a number of paths are subject to a diversion or modification. These changes are waymarked on the ground as they come into force but it is some time before the changes appear on Ordnance Survey maps.
We cannot post all the path changes here but aim to show the most recent ones. They are posted by parish with the date when the change came into effect.
Rosedale Railway (temporary closure 8 July - 30 September 2019). This closure does not affect how you use the public footpath crossing the restricted open access land. Please also note that Dale Head Farm Tea Garden is open as usual.

Landslip at Port Mulgrave
No pedestrian shall proceed along footpath 33 Hinderwell, which led from the cliff top down to the beach, commencing at Grid Reference (GR) NZ 7970 1761 the highest path corner on the coastal slope, going south, east and generally north-east for 198 metres to GR NZ 7981 1765 the footpath end on the foreshore.
The ground on which the path ran has been lost due to a significant landslip.

A section of the footpath running above Botton Grove and Lumley House in Danbydale (NZ 6978 0521 going north for 305m to the Footbridge at GR NZ 6984 0550) will be closed until further notice due to a collapsing culvert running the length of the path.

Bridleway and footpath closure - Farndale
The bridleway and footpath in the parishes of Farndale East and Farndale West will be closed between 27 July until 16 August 2019 due to an unsafe bridge over the River Dove. No pedestrian, horse rider or cyclist shall proceed. There is no alternative route.
Rights of way map
To find out more about where to Walk, Ride and Cycle in the North York Moors National Park have a look at our interactive rights of way map (updated daily). You can zoom in and out at various scales by following the instructions displayed underneath the map and by using the Legend and Layer buttons you can see all Public Rights of Way.
You can also find out if there are any stiles, steps, gates or bridges on the paths and where there are sign-posts. Helpful for route-finding or for picking an easier access walk if someone in your group, or your dog finds stiles tricky. The furniture items are regularly updated, but are not guaranteed as they do change with land management needs – stiles and gates are after all, only there to keep livestock in... or out.
If you do happen to find any issues with the public rights of way, there’s a problem reporting tool here as well.
