The Lyke Wake Walk
Are you ready for a challenge? If a 42 mile walk (to be completed within 24 hours) across the Yorkshire Moors sounds like something you’d like to take part in, perhaps the Lyke Wake Walk might be of interest. There aren’t any route restrictions and can be done from west to east (from Osmotherley and Ravenscar) or vice versa. Anyone who finishes the walk is entitled to buy a Lyke Wake Club badge.

Robin Hood’s Bay to Boggle Hole
Robin Hood’s Bay is a quaint fishing village situated on the coast of North Yorkshire. Walking guides are distributed around local shops, but if the tide is out, you can walk along the beach to Boggle Hole, a fossil-filled sandy shore. If your trip is being made with scientific intention, a visit in the winter months is highly recommended! Grab a breath of sea air and a fossil (or two) whilst you’re down there! You can also walk via Cleveland Way if the weather isn’t on your side.
Coast to Coast
Created by author and illustrator Alfred Wainwright, the coast to coast walk (according to Wainwright’s guidebook) is 190 miles long and passes through three National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Now, that’s a lot of ground to cover! The trail begins at St. Bee’s in Cumbria and ends at Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire.
