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.

A brilliant route. Some hills, but nothing overly excessive. The route has many benches along the way, so plenty of opportunities to sit and take the views in.

We have walked this trail several times. It is great for dog walking as there are no farm animals on this trail and the dog can have a free from lead day. There are lots of places to rest and enjoy the views. Just the right length for us .

Impressed with this walk and wish there were more like it at Dalby.
