Share a Ryedale route for fellow walkers

Calling all walkers who love to put their best foot forward in picturesque Ryedale!

Do you have a favourite route from a town in the district? If you do, the local tourism team, Visit Ryedale, wants to know about it.

The team is working with digital walking guide business iFootpath to create  walking guides from the five market towns  Malton, Norton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley. The guides will include all the best features of traditional guide books with turn-by-turn directions, nice photography and rich information about the history and the environment. Four walks of up to six miles from each town including linear routes using public transport will be created.

The guides will then be available on the iFootpath iPhone or Android App and visitors will be able to follow their real-time progress with a GPS powered live map and even add comments and ratings. Each walk will be printable and provided at visitor information points throughout the district.

The project is part of the Ryedale Market Town initiative, to encourage visitors to stay longer and spend more in and around the towns.

Walkers with a favourite route are invited to send a brief description and map and contact details  to visitor economy officer Craig Nattress craig.nattress@ryedale.gov.uk or post to Ryedale House, Old Malton, YO17 7HH by 31 March. One walk will then be picked at random to win a £20 voucher at a Ryedale outdoor equipment retailer.
