This 20 mile circular walk takes you on a tour of the countryside, lakes, rivers, woodland and villages surrounding the historic Yorkshire town of Knaresborough. It's a great way to explore this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.
The walk starts by the River Nidd near Knaresborough Castle in the town centre. You then follow the river east towards the village of Goldsborough, home to the Grade II* listed Jacobean mansion of Goldsborough Hall. Woodland sections through Great Wood and Parsonage Wood take you to Flaxby and Coneythorpe.
The route continues through several small villages around Farnham including Ferrensby, Occaney, Brearton and Scotton where you will enter the wonderful Nidd Gorge. The beautiful river gorge is a real highlight on the walk with lots of interesting flora and fauna to look out for.
The final section takes you towards Starbeck and Gallow Hill before returning to the town.
This walk joins with the Harrogate Ringway so you can pick up this trail to further explore the area.
