A WALK through bluebells, a bushcraft course and an Easter trail are some of the outdoor activities on offer in the North York Moors this spring.

A programme of events has been drawn up to appeal to families and walkers at the beginning of April.

There will be kayaking, the chance to learn how to make a campfire on a bushcraft course, geocaching and a Compass Explorers’ Challenge at East Barnby Outdoor Centre.

People can also take a three-mile walk through a carpet of bluebells at Duncombe Estate in Helmsley or view some of the estate’s ancient trees.

At Great Ayton there will be another chance to take a bluebell walk, through open fields and woodland at Great Ayton on May 5.

The Moors National Park Centre at Danby will be running an Easter Trail from 10am between March 29 and April 1 when people can locate hidden eggs using a map. A prize is on offer for all those who find the ten hidden eggs. The cost is £2.50 for children.

Many of the events need to be booked in advance. For more information visit: www.northyorkmoors.org.uk/events
