This lovely walk is around the estate perimeter, with lovely views over the house, through the deer park and across to Almscliffe Crag.
Route: We followed this route from the Walking Englishman website.
Accessibility: Muddy in places but generally fine with a buggy. There is one set of steps in Harewood when you leave the path adjacent to the A61.
Parking: there’s free parking at the junction of Wike Lane and A61 (where the walk starts)
Facilities: None, and limited places to picnic other than the field you start in and the deer park. The route passes the Muddy Boots cafe which has a children’s menu, high chairs and changing facilities.
This is a relatively easy route, with a couple of hills but nothing too strenuous. It’s just enough to let you feel that you’ve done a decent walk! Great if you don’t want to travel too far out of Leeds.
