Free Walk Downloads


Thousands of free walk downloads are available across the internet. Hundreds have details of walks covering the length and breadth of Yorkshire. If you were to walk just one each weekend, to "do" them all would take you - well, a very long time!



Here is a collection of just some of them. Each link connects to an external web site where you'll find details of the walks in many different formats. Some describe, in loving detail, all that is to be seen along the way. Others provide concise directions only. Many recommend maps that cover the area and most will give an indication of the difficulty of the terain. Of course, because the information is not on the Yorkshire Visitors Guide web site, I have no control over the accuracy or content of the articles.


As I come across more free walk downloads they will be added here to build up a useful resource - helping you plan your days out in the fresh air of Yorkshire.


One of my favourite areas of Yorkshire is that around the historic maritime port of Whitby on the Yorkshire coast - so that is where I will start.

Dracula's Whitby A 4 mile walk along the cliff tops and through the old town.

Whitby and Saltwick Bay A four and a half mile walk beginning in and returning to the centre of Whitby.

Robin Hood's Bay to Ravenscar A seven mile round trip walk along the coast (literally) to Ravenscar, the holiday town that never was! Return to Robin Hood's Bay is at high level away from the sea but with spectacular views.

Staithes A seven mile circular walk starting and finishing in the pretty fishing village that is Staithes. This walk climbs from sea level through woodland to the tiny hamlet of Roxby before crossing farmland with grand sea views.

Runswick Bay A two mile linear walk along the Runswick Bay clifftop. An easy walk suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.

Saltburn Valley Gardens A two mile circular walk along the maze of paths through Saltburn's Valley Gardens. A moderate walk suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
