The Howardian Hills are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lying just south of the North York Moors. This circular walk takes you over the edge and into the heart of the hills.

Starting in the ancient village of Sheriff Hutton, the walk follows the Ebor Way into the hills. Once in the hills, you could stop at the small picturesque lake for a picnic and watch the anglers before returning along the Centenary Way.

The skyline of Sheriff Hutton is dominated by the magnificent ruined castle which you will observe on much of the walk and which is well worth a look on your return.

Very good walk with spectacular views.

9/12/2012 - Robert Audsley

We did the walk yesterday and enjoyed the stunning views. Maybe just a couple of possible amendments to help the walker:- WAYMARK 3 - After 600m cross a small stream then cross over the gallops and continue ahead in a northeasterly direction. After approx. 300m turn left onto a wide track. WAYMARK 7 Follow the lane for just over 1 km to reach Birkdale Farm. (Ignore the sign that says Private Road for farm access only. The track turns right at the farm, passing through a gate. Keep straight ahead taking the right hand track and not the one heading down towards the lake. (ie due south along a field path). WAYMARK 11 - The walk took us descending down through the wood. At the bottom we turned left onto a wide track. WAYMARK 12 - The barn is on the left and not the right. We rejoined WAYMARK 4 as instructed.

Seán Diver 19-10-2007;Excellent walk, great panoramic views, starts on level ground but there is some steep gradients to be done along the way, one minor point, the walk would be more preferable to start/finish with the path linking the bottom of Main St/East End to No.2 on the route, then following the Ebor Way and vice versa to finish, the busy main road (without path) would be avoided.
