Walks, Visits & Events Keen to know more about the Moors? NYMA runs guided walks, themed events and visits to interesting places. The walks are led by people keen to share their favourite places, and some have a theme such as botany or geology. The visits focus on historical and cultural locations or environmental management.
Sometimes we set the challenge of doing a long distance route - but in stages. So in 2015 members completed 48 miles through the Tabular Hills (from Helmsley to Scarborough) in several circular walks, and in 2016 they did part of the Cleveland Way. Most of the walks are 5-7 miles long. Note that we don't always allow dogs - please check with the walk leader.
As places are limited, do please confirm with them if you're coming!
We're always keen to add more walks to our programme, so please get in touch if you have a special place you'd like to share.
We also run guided visits and events to places of historical, cultural or ecological interest. Most of these take place in the North York Moors, but sometimes they're to places relevant to the Moors. We do hope you'll join us!
