Walk Description

Start by taking the steam train to Levisham from Pickering. Always take the train (or bus) first on one way walks to avoid any stress and time constraints on your return.

From Levisham station a steep climb takes you to the attractive village of Levisham. From here the walk is (nearly) all downhill as it follows the valley south through Levisham Woods to Farwath meeting Pickering Beck.

From here forest tracks follow the river for 4 miles on the return to Pickering. The sound of steam trains passing is just one of the many pleasant experiences on this walk.
