The Woodcock Way trail starts at the picturesque Staindale Lake and heads off into a variety of woodland using forest roads and footpaths.
The trail follows a circular route and takes in fine views across the North York Moors over Staindale, Yondhead Rigg and Crosscliff. Start your walk or run from either the Staindale car park or Crosscliff car park and follow the orange way markers.
There are two routes along the circular trail, one long route which is 4.3 miles (7km) and a shorter route which is 3 miles (4.8km).
The trail will take you mostly on forest roads, with some uneven paths and hills. Developed by the Friends of Dalby Forest.

Great trail through a variety of woodland scenery with easy to follow orange markers. Especially enjoyed the sections on narrower paths rather than wide tracks and would love to see more routes of this sort of length utilising them.
