When it comes to dog walks in Scarborough, there’s lots more options than just the beaches! If you’re looking to avoid the sticky sand and salty sea, you can venture to one of our local parks and woods, or go further afield to the North York Moors and beyond.

In this blog, our dog-friendly hotel has listed the best local dog walks in Scarborough that avoid the beaches.

Peasholm Park

This park is great for those looking for a peaceful walk with their pooch. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome to trek around the vast lake, natural glen and little ponds. Just please don’t let your dog pee on the very pretty and very rare trees. And maybe don’t take your pooch on a dragon boat.

Raincliffe Woods

Just a couple of miles out of the town centre, Raincliffe Woods has three trails for you to follow with your pup: Rowntree, Graham and Wallis – you can bet we love these names! The Wallis route is the most strenuous, so might be best avoided if you have a small dog that loves to be carried. We’re looking at you, chihuahuas.

The Mere

If you ask any of the locals what the best dog walk in Scarborough is, you can bet that they’ll send you on your way here. The famous Mere is the Lakeland that you can find down at the Weaponness Valley. We promise this location isn’t as threatening as the name implies.

Dalby Forest

Drive a little further out of Scarbs to Dalby Forest – it’s well worth it! There are a whopping 12 walking trails to choose from, including some easy access routes for the laziest of pooches. The Crosscliff View trail is one of their shortest walks, but you’re rewarded with stunning scenery to have a gander at!

Broxa Forest

Looking to make the most of the North Yorkshire Moors? Broxa Forest is the place for you! Follow the wooded walk to discover stunning views – and even look out for the Northern Lights! Let your dog be at one with the wind, as you investigate whether that glint you thought was an aeroplane is, in fact, one of nature’s best wonders. Will you ever know?

Our dog-friendly hotel in Scarborough is in the prime spot for you to access all the best walks of North Yorkshire. Even better? After a day of wild adventures, you can clean your smelly pooch down in our Wadobi. Find out more about how our hotel caters to your four-legged-friend: https://bikeandboot.com/scarborough/dog/
