The walk starts off in the picturesque village of Coxwold, which is surrounded by the scenic views of the North York Moors. Within the village itself there are a number of historic buidings with interesting architecture.

As the walk leaves the village, the views of the North York Moors can really be appreciated.

The route heads for Byland Abbey, which are magnificent ruins and are definitely worth viewing, even from the roadside. The Abbey Inn opposite the abbey is an up-market pub offering real ales and excellent meals and would make an ideal break if so wished.

The route then follows a country lane through woodland and rejoins the outward route, with extensive views towards the White Horse.

Note - the 'lone tree' mentioned in the early part of the walk is now just a stump. Also early on in the walk it says to turn right at the bridge/style combination, then look for a red gate. Note - it is the second bridge/style combination where you need to turn right. go straight ahead at the first one.
