|The Cropton Round|
|Author: DogWalksYorkshire, Published: 23 Mar 2017||Walk Rating:|
|North Yorkshire, Pickering|
|A 4.5 mile circular walk from the village of Cropton in North Yorkshire. If you and your pooch like the shade of woodland trails and appreciate the opportunity to have a paddle, then this quiet fairly easy walk in and out of woods and through fields is for you. |
The terrain is medium difficulty, mostly wooded, sheltered paths with some open areas. There is one steep climb at the end of the walk, otherwise it is fairly level. There are no stiles on route, just several gates and kissing gates to negotiate. Most of the paths are within woodland but there are a couple of fields where you may come across livestock. There are plenty of opportunities for dogs to be off the lead, however dogs should be on the lead where sheep are grazing and through the small caravan park at the end of the walk. Allow 2 hours.
Cropton is signposted from the A170 Scarborough to Thirsk road, just west of Pickering. There is street parking available in the village. The walk starts alongside The New Inn and Cropton Brewery. Approximate post code YO18 8HH.
|Start to Mill Wood|
Start point: 54.2904 lat, -0.8413 long
The walk starts from outside Cropton Brewery and the New Inn. Beer has been brewed in Cropton since 1613, when it was illegal! Brewing returned to the village in 1984, when Cropton Brewery was established. Daily tours of the brewery are available and the lovely beers can be sampled at the New Inn.
|Mill Wood to Tree Gap|
Start point: 54.2814 lat, -0.8488 long
Keep to the high path in line with the tops of the trees below. Keep ahead through a small dip, regaining height immediately with the Hawthorne hedge remaining on your left. Pass through another gate and keep ahead, ignoring a downhill path to your right.
|Tree Gap to Low Lane|
Start point: 54.2721 lat, -0.8585 long
Turn right uphill through a gate then immediately left, heading for a gate back towards the trees. Follow the path through the woodlands, keeping the beck on your left and ignoring the path joining steeply from the right. If your pooch fancies a paddle, there are ample opportunities for a quick dip.
|Low Lane to End|
Start point: 54.2812 lat, -0.8521 long
Follow the track, Low Lane. Where the track bends to the right, keep left along the path and continue ahead for about 800 metres. Just before a track from Cropton Mill joins from the left, take a right through a gate and continue on the steep path uphill towards the right-hand end of the tree line. Look for some steps to a little kissing gate, almost hidden in the top right corner of the field, by a Hawthorne tree.

Lovely walk, really clear directions - we didn't get lost once! Lots of shady woodland paths which were perfect on a hot sunny day in early June. The wild garlic was spectacular.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
