Experience the Moors Join NYMA's friendly guided walks, visits to places of cultural and environmental interest, and other stimulating events about what matters in the Moors.
Most walks are 4-7 miles long and include a picnic stop and opportunities to admire the view.
Dogs are normally welcome, but please check with the walk leader.
We're always keen to add more walks and events to our programme, so please get in touch if you have a special place you'd like to share!
