Walk map

This is a delightful, circular stroll, in and around the valley of the Upper Rye. Offering gently undulating terrain and no fence-climbing, stream-jumping or
river-wading. Bridges have been provided where appropriate. There are three stiles and a short section off-piste but easy.
Take the Osmotherley road through Hawnby village to the large grass area at Hazel Heads [SE 529928].

This is about 3km or 2 miles from Hawnby. Total drive time is approximately 30mins from Oswaldkirk.

There are plenty of shorter walks around both Hazel Heads and Hawnby for those that wish to have lunch, but not do the full walk. See Walk map and map of Hawnby environs.
