There is a small area for car parking – Little Blakey Carpark at the start of this walk.
The track is well defined and very easy to follow, with information boards at the start of the walk which explain some of the history surrounding this area.
It is an easy walk on compounded aggregate which is deal for wheelchairs. Suitable for most all terrain wheelchairs such as the TerrainHopper or Mountain Trike.
There is no seating available along the route and no nearby facilities.
The track was a former ironstone railway around Rosedale, built around 1870. The drift entrances are a fascinating sight to see. Panoramic views of Rosedale are your reward for doing this historical walk on the North York Moors.
Debbie says: “It certainly is a good wheelchair friendly walk in North Yorkshire and perfect for a family stroll.”
