Just completed the Harrogate Ringway Walk today. Started in Knaresbrough since this is closer to my home. Excellent circular walk clocking 22miles on my GPS watch from the town car park. There are so many paths that intersect the Ringway and housing has encroached making...More

We failed to complete the 20 miles as we ran out of time and needed to be back in Harrogate. The walk was lovely, albeit very wet. Some great contrasts with lovely views mixed with "urban" areas. Must be a way to avoid walking alongside...More

I run this 20mile loop and find it one of the most beautiful walks in the area. There are some lovely countryside views, and it runs by some nice pubs for refreshments if you need it, and it loops Harrogate, whilst also incorporating the Knaresborough...More

This really is a great walk, and can be done in sections, as well as in one go. It's easily accessible by public transport, and the terrain is very varied. It's been extremely quiet whenever I've walked it, and it's hard to believe you're so...More

It varies, as some is by a very very busy road, but in general I found this a good beginning for other nearby walks.

Having done this twice and various elements many times over it is a worthwhile challenge. A tough ask in an entire day but have done it easily in two with children. A couple of major roads to cross but nothing too bad. Not too many...More

A walk of about 20 miles round Harrogate. We did it in sections and thoroughly enjoyed very minute. You certainly get a much better appreciation of the picturesque countryside around Harrogate.
