Summary: Encompassing the vast moorland ridges adjacent to Bilsdale in the North York Moors National Park, it is intended as a single day expedition for experienced fell walkers. The circular route was developed during 1978 by Mike Teanby, North Yorkshire's Regional Group Secretary of the LDWA. Since then it has become' an increasingly popular challenge walk among LDWA members and rambling clubs throughout the Country. It is a strenuous circuit with over 4,000ft of ascent, mainly along tracks and the high moors within sight of the Bilsdale TV mast. The route takes in Roppa Edge and Urra Moor where it is coincident with the Lyke Wake Walk and Cleveland Way National Trail, and West Moor. (Source: LDWA)
