The Goathland - Legend of the Gytrash Treasure Trail starts at:
North York Moors National
We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.
Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

Explore this unspoilt village via grass verges, pavements and country paths. Some of these areas can get muddy, so suitable footwear is recommended. Park in the main car park on Beck Hole Road or if this is full, try the overflow car park next door (YO22 5NJ).
There are scenic picnic spots about halfway along the route as well as refreshments available at the station and at the finishing point. Toilets are available in the main car park at the start of the Trail and there is a small children's playground within the Trail route.
Extend your trip:
There are plenty of scenic walks available in the surrounding areas including a short walk to Mallyan Spout waterfall which is detailed as a suggested detour within the Trail booklet. You could also take a short trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (fares and timetable restrictions apply).
There is a main car park in the centre of Goathland with an overflow car park during busier periods. Parking is also available at Pickering and other stations along the North York Moors Railway if you wanted to travel to Goathland by train. Buses connect Goathland with Whitby, Pickering, Malton and Leeds.
