The North York Moors Steam Railway is one of the best in the country, principally due to the countryside through which it travels. I've deliberately included a trip on this enchanting railway as the first leg of this walk because it makes the whole experience that bit more special - and the kids will love it. Don't forget your camera!

Having been steamed along the wooded beauty of Newton Dale, your first stop is Levisham Station. You'll have plenty of opportunity to take snapshots of the engine and the station itself, before climbing briefly out of Newton Dale. The path then drops through woodland back towards the railway line, before climbing out once more at Farwath.

The next leg of the walk is principally along open meadow above Newton Dale, with views to the south stretching over the Vale of Pickering to the Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire Wolds beyond.

After dropping once more into Newton Dale, the final stretch is along Pickering Beck, which runs right past Pickering Station.

For another walk that uses the North York Moors Railway, see Walk 2826.

Dog-walkers please note the presence of sheep, cows and many dog-unfriendly stiles. Please also control your dog during the nesting season, to protect ground-nesting birds.
