komoot planned a hike.
November 6, 2019
The centuries fall into each other on this hike as Bronze Age burial chambers, medieval crosses, and 17th-century works remains merge in the isolated moorland landscape.
From Blakey Ridge, the trail descends gradually over Wether Hill and Rosedale Moor through a vast expanse of wild heather and bog.
The trail reaches a low-point to cross Wheeldale Beck, where you are treated to a small stretch of farmland before you begin climbing through lonely heather moorland once again.
A short time later you reach Simon Howe, which boasts a well-preserved Bronze Age round cairn, a stone row, and a standing stone, as well as wonderful views over the wild expanse of Goathland Moor and beyond.
The trail continues over Fylingdales Moor to Jugger Howe, where you can see a number of Bronze Age burial cairns.
You continue over Stony Marl Moor and Howdale Moor to finish the trail at Beacon Howes, on the outskirts of Ravenscar.
This stage takes you into the village itself, via Peak Alum Works and some sea views, to make for an epic finish. This adds around one-and-a-half miles (two-and-a-half kilometers).
There is not much in Ravenscar but you will find some options for accommodation and food and drink. There are plenty of options nearby, too.
