The trail begins from the market town of Helmsley then heads across the breathtaking heather moorland of the North York Moors National Park, before reaching the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea. From here you will follow the North Yorkshire coastline to Filey, passing old fishing villages and coastal towns.
The route will take you through Robin Hood’s Bay, the famous smuggler’s village, also the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby – home to Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
The Cleveland Hills and some of the coastal sections can be quite challenging but anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will find it manageable.
