Explore the woodlands of Brayton Barff
In the open valley of Pickering, this route flows through ancient woodland and is a great spot for bird watching and spring bluebells. Several other footpaths branch off to take you exploring through the woods or climbing towards the summit, which is the highest point for miles within an area dominated by flat agricultural land. Please note: these extra paths are less suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
