Description

I have devised Yorhax two to avoid the unsafe crossing of the A1237 (York ring road) as noted by several reviewers, and also to provide a more level, more direct route within York city centre for those that prefer this.

From York's start point, the route crosses the River Ouse via Lendal Bridge, then diverges from Yorhax one to pass in front of York Minster along Deangate. At Monk Bar the route rejoins Yorhax one and then follows the River Foss all the way to Haxby.

Where Yorhax one bears left at Huntington church then proceeds to cross the ring road on the level, Yorhax two continues to meander alongside the River Foss. After safely passing under the ring road, the route crosses first to the east bank via a tall and narrow footbridge then back to the west bank on a low footbridge. Shortly after crossing the second footbridge the route bears left away from the river to arrive at Landing Lane. Turn right onto Landing Lane then left onto Station Road to cross the railway level crossing and proceed into Haxby village.

This route is at risk of flooding when the River Foss is high.

Unfortunately the route is not suitable for wheeling due to several kissing gates and flights of steps

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

I'm giving this route 5 stars as it has all the good things about Yorhax one but without the unsafe road crossing. Walking through the historic centre of York is always awe-inspiring, and meandering alongside the River Foss is delightful as it is a lovely wildlife corridor. The route passes through the Quaker village of New Earswick (where there are shops and bus stops) and then past Huntington church with its peaceful churchyard. I'd definitely walk this route again and recommend it to others.

Its only downside (but not enough to drop a star in my opinion) is that the riverside footpaths can be muddy/slippy in places, and the lowest parts of the route are subject to flooding when the river is high. After heavy or prolonged rain it will be worth checking river levels before setting out.
