Day Walks on the North York Moors showcases 20 circular walks, between 5 and 13.7 miles (8 and 22 kilometres) in length, suitable for hillwalkers of all abilities. The routes are split into three areas – The Cleveland Hills and Hambleton Hills, Central Moors and Coastal Walks – and include walks to the most historic and beautiful areas of the Moors, including: Lord Stones, Wainstones and Clay Bank, Rievaulx Abbey, Blakey Ridge and Farndale, the Hole of Horcum, and the stunning coastline at Robin Hood’s Bay and Ravenscar. The author of this guidebook, Tony Harker, is a Moors local and keen hillwalker. Each route in this guide is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, navigation information and refreshment stops, and is plotted on clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps. The walks are illustrated with stunning photography by Adam Long. Also included is a detailed Appendix.

Growing up in Teesside Tony Harker started walking on the Moors at a young age in the 1970s. A passionate Moors local Tony spends much of his time walking or cycling in the National Park, and as a result he has a developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Moors' paths and bridleways. He is the author of North York Moors Mountain Biking: Moorland Trails. Tony is still going strong, despite a history of knee problems, and when not walking, Tony runs Fanatic Sport and Leisure, the UK's leading retailer specialising in rowing clothing and accessories.
