2. Dalby Forest - (13 miles circular) - This combines two way-marked Forestry Commission trails (green and blue routes) starting at Sneverdale carpark - toll access from Thornton le Dale, about 2 miles from Pickering. The paths are mainly forestry tracks with a few 'footpath' sections in between. There are few hills but the worst of these is at the start and after that the paths are mostly on a plateau with a slight descent. A full circuit with stops took us 3½ hours - adults would do this in half the time. A leaflet can obtained from the shop near the carpark.
