Knock Geotrail

Knock Geotrail

This 6.8 mile (11km) trail follows marked footpaths up the North Pennine escarpment and through part of the Moor House-Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve.

The different types of rocks you will see on this trail tell a story of the events and processes that have created this landscape over nearly 500 million years of Earth history.

This trail uses marked footpaths and tracks, and use of an Ordnance Survey map and compass is recommended. Strong boots, warm clothing and good waterproofs are advised.

Start location: Travel north-west of Knock and take the minor road that passes the Christian Centre (NY 686 288).
Terrain: Off-road sections and on-road sections.

There is public transport and limited parking available.
