Mountain Bike Routes - Malton - Howardian Hills

Mountain Bike Route - Malton - Howardian Hills - Hovingham - Nunnington

General
The two routes are common for the first 15 miles to East Ness where they diverge, one returning to Malton via the B1257 (24 miles) and the other returning to Malton by way of a number of small villages, hamlets and quiet country roads typical of the Vale of Pickering (30 miles) .The latter is best avoided after heavy rain or if the ground is very wet as the mud is very heavy and makes the going very difficult on the bridleway between East Ness and Salton.

The first 15 miles of the route contain some wonderful off-road cycling, including 5 miles of bridleway along the crest of the hills between Park House and Wath, 1 ½ miles of level bridleway between Hovingham and Cawton and 2 miles of bridleway across Caulkleys Bank from Stonegrave to West Ness.

Points of Interest
There are pubs a Amotherly, Appleton le Street, Slingsby, Hovingham, Nunnington, Great Baraugh and Great Habton.

There are interesting churches at Amotherby, Appletonle- Steet (Saxon), Nunnington, Salton (Norman) and Stonegrave.

Nunnington Hall
Nunnington Hall (the earliest part of which was built in the reign of Elizabeth I) is owned by the National Trust and is open from the beginning of April to the end of November. It is closed on Mondays (except over Bank Holidays) and on Fridays (except in July and August). It has a Tea Room. For exact dates and timings check with a Tourist Information Centre. To visit Nunnington Hall, leave the route at the top of Caulkleys Bank and go down the road into the village of Nunnington. Cross the river and the entrance to the car park is on the right. The first 15 miles of the route contain some wonderful off-road cycling, including 5 miles of bridleway along the crest of the hills between Park House and Wath, 11 miles of level bridleway between Hovingham and Cawton and 2 miles of bridleway across Caulkleys Bank from Stonegrave to West Ness. You can rejoin the route by following the road to West Ness. There is no need to go back up Caulkleys Bank unless you wish to!
