The North Yorkshire Moors Railway Trail Treasure Trail starts at:
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.

This Trail requires the purchase of train tickets for travel on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Before purchasing this Trail, please visit www.nymr.co.uk for the latest ticket prices to ensure that you are happy to pay these.
You will need return tickets between Pickering and Grosmont, which allow for a break in the journey to alight at Goathland and solve the clues there.
Alternatively you could choose to walk between Goathland and Grosmont along the historic Rail Trail (3.5 miles) which follows the older, steeper railway line through Beck Hole. It is better to start the walk from Goathland as it is downhill to Grosmont!
Clues are set at Pickering, Goathland and Grosmont Stations. Clues at Pickering and Goathland are in the stations themselves. At Grosmont, you will also explore the village along to the engine sheds to solve the Clues. You will need to allow up to an hour to solve the Clues. Extra time whilst waiting for the next trail can be spent exploring each station stop further at your leisure.
Please check that trains are running before you travel and examine the timetable for that day to plan your journeys. On all timetables, you will need to set off on a morning train, the earlier the better to give you more train options. On the Winter Timetable and some other off-peak periods, you will have to ensure that you are on the first train of the day. Full train times and information are available on www.nymr.co.uk
WCs, refreshments and shops are available at all three stops on this Trail
