Route 9

Stainburn Forest & Almscliffe Crag (19 miles)

Hornbeam and out to Beckwithshaw, pass through the village and turn R to go to Stainburn Forest car park. Turn L to follow track through the forest. At end of track turn L, go through two gates, and turn L at T-junction. After about ½ mile turn L on B6161 then 1st R to Almscliffe Crag. Take L to North Rigton and here turn L to Beckwithshaw.
At crossroad at top of long climb, either continue to Beckwithshaw or R to Burn Bridge (Map shows return via Burnbridge) and home to Harrogate.
Bit hilly, but scenery makes it worthwhile
