The beautiful rolling countryside of theHowardian Hills AONB provides excellent prospects for walkers. A diverse network of footpaths and bridleways offer a superb selection of routes ranging from riverside rambles to scenic hill walks.

The Howardian Hills, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1987, covers an area of 79 square miles (204km²); consisting of well-wooded hills and sequestered valleys, arable and pasture farmland, hedgerows, designed parklands and picturesque villages.

The region has an astonishing heritage with numerous archaeological and historical features, from Bronze Age burial mounds and Iron Age earthworks to medieval castles and monasteries. Also, considerable evidence exists of the Roman occupation, including a fort at Malton and the remains of twenty pottery kilns at Crambeck.

The Howardian Hills is the only area of Jurassic limestone landscape in the north of England to be designated as an AONB. The deeply incised Kirkham Gorge is a unique glacial overflow channel of great scientific importance.

After exploring the unspoilt countryside and experiencing the peace and tranquillity of the area at close quarters, you will long to return here, time after time.

Each walk has a two page description, a colour map with numbered arrow pointers and route directions with grid references to aid map reading. All of the walks follow circular routes ranging from 5 to 8 miles (8.0 to 12.9km).
