NYMR Train in Newtondale by Mike Kipling

Rosedale Abbey to Dalby

The most challenging Moor to Sea section crosses no fewer than four steep-sided woodland valleys – including the North York Moors' own miniature 'Grand Canyon' of Newtondale – and also includes long stretches on stone tracks and grass and earth paths. Your reward? Spectacular scenery, shady forest tracks and moorland paths on a route that’s largely traffic-free.
