This is a great circular walk for families, with 5 themed Geocaches to find, each with letters taped inside.  Find all the geocaches and their letters and use them to unscramble a word.  Tell us the word, or visit the Fiddle Drill Tearooms at Goodmanham and tell them, and each family will get their very own special National Trail Geocoin!

You need to go to  to find the details of where the Geocaches are hidden.  Their names are

Yorkshire Wolds Way Geocache Trail - Railway

Yorkshire Wolds Way Geocache Trail - Stream

Yorkshire Wolds Way Geocache Trail - Well

Yorkshire Wolds Way Geocache Trail - Quarry

Distance: 6.3Km / 3.9 miles

Duration: allow about 3 hours for the walk, plus refreshment stops

Difficulty:  This is a fairly easy walk, with no stiles and just a small climb on the road from old railway line up towards Goodmanham.  It is accessible to wheelchair users.
