Originally described by Alfred Wainwright in his 1973 book A Coast to Coast Walk, this hike covers 192 miles from Saint Bees and the Irish Sea to Robin Hood's Bay and the North Sea. It is customary to dip your boot in the water at each end. The walk goes through three major National Parks: the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park. Despite being an unofficial route that has relatively few signposts, this through hike is one of the most popular in the UK. Dent, High Stile, Helm Crag (optional), Helvellyn and St Sunday Crag, Kidsty Pike, Nine Standards Rigg/Hartley Fell, Carlton Bank, Cringle Moor/High Blakey Moor/Glaisdale Moor, and Urra Moor are hiked while on this trail.
