Lake Pickering Circuit

N Yorkshire

249 km / 155 miles
The Lake Pickering Circuit was devised to commemorate Percy Kendallís classic paper suggesting how a great lake occupied the Vale at the end of the Ice Age. The Circuit is a 155-mile trail following the higher land around the edges of the Vale and the route is made up of 36 separate but inter-connecting circular day walks. These pass along the Howardian and Tabular Hills, the North Sea coastal cliffs and the Yorkshire Wolds. A total of 384 miles is mapped and described. The Vale of Pickering has a rich history of Christian witness and the walks can be used as a basis for Christian pilgrimage.
