A circular walk from the Wolds settlement of Goodmanham exploring the countryside to the east of the village. The route uses sections of the waymarked Yorkshire Wolds Way and Hudson Way which run through the area. You'll visit attractive wolds and dales with a visit to a chalk pit nature reserve as well.
The walk starts in the village where you can pick up the Yorkshire Wolds Way. Follow the waymarked trail south east and it will take you over the Mill Beck and towards the Arras Cottages. Here you leave the trail to pick up Kiplingcotes Lane and follow it north to Goodmanham Dale and Ridge Hill.
The route then turns west to follow a trail through Goodmanham Wold to the Kiplingcotes Chalk Pit which is now a nature reserve. This section passes along the Hudson Way, a shared cycling and walking footpath running along a disused railway line.
From the chalk pit you continue west along country lanes to return you to the village.
