Shepherd's huts in Dalby Forest with hiking guide

Overview

Mountain bikers can take their pick of trails in Dalby Forest, set in the southern valleys of the North York Moors National Park. Miles of forests lead the way through the woodlands, and you can also explore on foot or on horseback. Kids have plenty to get excited about, too, with activities including a treetop adventure course, paintballing, archery, and orienteering. Stick around after dark as the park is also renowned for its dark skies and stargazing opportunities. The two campsites within Dalby Forest are reserved for use by youth groups, but campers can find plenty of options nearby.

When to go

Walkers and mountain bikers can hit the trails at Dalby Forest year-round, although it can get muddy after rainfall, so wear sturdy shoes. July and August are the busiest months, when it’s essential to book activities or bike rentals in advance. Spring and autumn see the forest at its most colourful, garnished with wildflowers or fall foliage, while autumn through winter is the best time for stargazing.

Know before you go

  • Dalby Forest is located at the south end of the North York Moors National Park, about a 30-minute drive from Pickering or Scarborough. 
  • The Moors Bus runs to the park from Easter through October, otherwise you will need your own transport. Paid parking (credit/debit cards only) is available.
  • There are restrooms, a gift shop, and a café in the park. Bike rentals are also available.
  • Some of the park’s trails are wheelchair accessible, and mobility scooters are available for hire.
