Newtondale Trail Hike: 2 September

On Sunday 2 September we’re planning to hike the Newtondale Trail in the North Yorkshire Moors. Starting from Pickering station car park, we’ll walk along the trail roughly following the route of the North York Moors Railway.

The activity is open to Explorers and older Scouts. The plan is for Scouts to walk from Pickering to the village of Goathland (also known as Aidensfield from the TV series Heartbeat). The distance is approx. 20km (13miles). Explorers will walk an extra leg from Goathland to Grosmont, taking their total distance up to approximately 25km (16miles).

We will return to Pickering station via steam train.

We’re still working out the details, but expect that the cost will be in the £10-15 range, depending on take up. We will set off at approx. 8am, returning at approx. 7pm. You will need hiking boots, suitable outdoor clothing, a day sack, and a packed lunch.
