Boltby Forest circular.
This large area of coniferous woodland on the western edge of the North York Moors is popular with walkers, although I had the place to myself on a cold and wintry Wednesday in December. The route is easy to navigate, but there is a reasonable amount of ascent, especially in the first couple of miles. My walk started in the small and pretty village of Boltby itself, although similar walks can be done starting at Sneck Gate car park a little further on along the Hawnby road.
An enjoyable walk which takes in the woodland of Boltby forest, but also joins the Cleveland Way alongside the moors for a mile or so along the top.
