Description: From Newgate Bank, we head down into Bilsdale and then skirt the edge of Easterside Hill, climbing gently to Moor Gate where the land opens up onto moorland covered in vibrant heather. A short but steep climb takes us up Hawnby Hill Crag where we will stop for lunch, enjoying stunning views in all directions. We drop down into Hawnby and follow a lane to Arden Hall, then up onto Dale Head Common. A short detour takes us to High Paradise Farm for afternoon tea and cake, and then return to Newgate Bank along the ridge top, finishing with one last steep descent into Rye Dale and then a steep climb back up to the car park.
