One of the joys of traversing the Yorkshire coastline is you’re bound to notice something new each time, after all you’re strolling a landscape that’s been carved by the elements for thousands of years.

With its rolling moorland, woodland trails and craggy coast, this is definitely a walker’s paradise.  Even if you don’t possess a pair of walking boots, there are lovely walks whatever your level of fitness. Explore new areas through a series of walks created by Discover Yorkshire Coast, split into short, medium or longer hikes.
