Summary: The Ebor Way is a 70-mile (112 km) long-distance footpath from Helmsley, North Yorkshire to Ilkley, West Yorkshire. The walk connects the Cleveland Way and Dales Way long distance paths. From Helmsley, the walk heads to Ilkley via Oswaldkirk, Cawton, Hovingham, Sheriff Hutton and Strensall before running alongside the River Foss to the centre of York. Passing York Minster, it skirts round the north and west sides of the city walls before leaving the city on the west bank of the River Ouse. From York the route continues via Bishopthorpe, Copmanthorpe, Bilbrough Top and Tadcaster to follow the River Wharfe through Boston Spa, with deviations away from the river bank through Newton Kyme and Thorp Arch to Wetherby. The path then heads south through Linton and crosses the River Wharfe, running along the south side of it to Harewood. The path continues through the grounds of Harewood House and onwards to Bramhope and Otley Chevin before dropping into Menston, and then climbing up to Ilkley Moor, following the edge of the moor before descending into Ilkley from the famous Cow and Calf rocks.
