Local Walks


We are passionate about helping residents and visitors enjoy the stunning outside areas of Knaresborough and the surrounding areas. We feel this is so important following the Covid 19 / lockdown situation that we have experienced this year.

Soon we will be updating this page and offering residents and visitors the chance to explore this area as part of a new joint initiative. Please pop back to this page for more updates as we encourage and support you to enjoy the beautiful area of Knaresborough.

 Here are just a few ideas for now but please call back for more information.


Nidd Gorge which is located just outside Knaresborough comprises of 68 acres of stunning woodland with walks that weave around the trees. Bats, roe deer, tawny owls and herons are just a few of the inhabitants of this woodland that you may spot on your walk. The main access and car park to the Gorge is located on the B6165 Knaresborough to Ripley Road about 1.5 miles from Knaresborough. for more information please click the link. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/visiting-woods/woods/nidd-gorge/
