Two brand new Tramper route are now up and running! You can now book online to experience the stunning North York Moors countryside at Dalby Forest and Cropton Forest.
The Dalby Forest Tramper gives you the chance to explore the delightful Ellerburn Red Trail, which has fantastic views along the Low Dalby Valley.
This undulating track winds through woodland and meadows along Thornton Beck in the Thornton Dale – and the Tramper will be available from 11am to 3pm each day.
Cropton Forest offers great diversity in the types of woodland and forest that can be explored on the Tramper. The Spiers bank route traverses through plantation forest, with views over moorland and opportunities for spotting a variety of wildlife.
Just like all our other Trampers, you can book these new Trampers through our website here – and we’d love to hear stories and see photographs of your adventures on these new routes.
These locations join Sutton Bank National Park Centre and Ravenscar Visitor Centre as landscapes with stunning and varied scenery that can now be enjoyed by all.
We’re grateful to our partners Forestry England and the North York Moors National Park Authority, whose drive is making Trampers in these new sites a possibility.
Mike Hawtin, Head of Natural Environmental at the North York Moors National Park, said:
“In expanding the scheme we are enabling visitors or residents to access experiences such as the drama of a sweeping coastal vista, taking in the finest view in England or the peace and tranquillity of a trek through the forest.
“Trampers allow couples, families and friendship groups to continue to enjoy the outdoors together through changing personal circumstances, ensuring that access to the beauty of the National Park continues to be available to the widest possible range of people.”
Trella Javanainen, Charity Operations Officer at Lake District Mobility, said:
“We are excited to be working with Forestry England, Forest Holidays and North York Moors National Park to offer Trampers to visitors at these wonderful locations. Trampers enable our members to enjoy time outdoors with their loved ones in amazing places that were previously out of reach to them. What our members ask for most is for more places to be made accessible by a Tramper. This partnership with Dalby and Cropton Forests gives them just that - more choice and more opportunities to go out, explore and enjoy!”
