Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail Directory
Yorkshire Wolds Way between Thixendale and Wharram Percy
The Wolds Way National Trail is a long distance footpath that follows a natural chalk escarpment which runs from Hull to Filey. At just over 76 miles long the walk crosses beautiful East Yorkshire countryside. The walk begins near the Humber Bridge and ends at Filey Brigg. During its 76 miles you walk through lots of lovely woodland, cross or walk through numerous delightful dales and visit a number of delightful villages, one of them deserted. Oh, and you see a lot of white stone on this unique chalkland walk.
