gorgeous views

Not a bad walk, but parts of the walk are not easy. There are paths in the woods that are steep, rocky overgrown and with tree roots, not for the faint hearted. Also not always well indicated so easy to take a wrong turn.

Lovely quiet walk in the country, dog could run to her hearts content.

nice easy walk lovely countryside great for dogs and children. lots of parks and attractions for people to do

A stunning walk with wonderful views and industrial archaeology at every turn. Personally, if I did this again I would turn around before the second ford gate waypoint and retrace my steps. The slog uphill and the descent to the end were an anticlimax compared to the first half of the walk.

Walk from Hole or Horcum car park, to needle point and back. Lots of ascent and descent, but worth it. Views from needle point are beautiful. Lots to do and see on the way including crossing the North Yorkshire moors railway.

Great walk, the dog enjoyed it too. A little bit of everything, woods, moorland, lake. Will go back there when I can.

Done this many times either as a single day walk or longer walk , Just love North Yorkshire Coast

Did it as part of a longer walk

Another favourite

We've done this walk several times over the years one of our favourites

walked the C2C in 2013 really tough but fabulous also loved it

walked this path in 2014 the wife's favourite , especially the coast part

Very confusing directions, you have to walk through pastures with cows, overgrown to the point where you can’t see the trail. Stick to the loop on the map by the starting point. The map on the app map gives you wrong directions. I couldn’t complete the loop with the map on this app because I got lost (and I’m pretty good with directions) and had a stand off with a cow.

That hill is a hike at the begining. But what a beautiful view and what a lovely route.

Great Cliff Top Trail

I would recommend this walk but in the reverse as the dogs can go in the River to cool down and have a drink

Walked this yesterday and despite the miserable weather it did not deflect from the beauty of this place. An amazing walk with beautiful waterfalls. There are a lot of steps throughout the walk and can be slippy when wet. Perfect walk with the dog too. My pooch loved it. It’s £7 per adult for entry and the walk is approx 2-2.5 hours long. There are cafe facilities half way round and W/C but the cafe only accepts cash.

Lovely walk with some great views. I'd definitely recommend this walk but I think it's a bit much charging £7 per person. other than that, it's a good day out.

Nice leisurely walk through the wolds. The road section isn't too long but make sure you take the second gate on the right not the first otherwise you end up at the bottom of a farmers field like us.

Was a really good trail, some fast road type tracks, got lost at one point as not fully signposted, but managed to find our way via roads and the use of the app. Would defiantly recommend for a pleasant day out!

Nice walk,around 2 hours, the druids temple is worth seeing

Our first trail using the app, myself and my two kids did it (4 and 6 years old). Maybe a bit more challenging for their first one, but I really enjoyed it. Well described, and a good work out. Managed to get back into Masham to sample a beer at Theakstons Brewery, so a great afternoon!

Quite a nice walk however lots and lots of litter. They charge £7 (if I remember correctly, per car). You don't need to pay, however, as you can get on the path at many other areas, which was a little annoying.

Straight forward walk with good views all around. my 7 yr old had no problems with the distance despite taking a longer loop around Hawes.

lovely walk, usually I'm rubbish with directions but this app is so easy to use..

Very good walk for the novice.

Great walk, absolutely beautiful. 100% recommend

I would recommend this walk for anyone with a dog, plenty of off lead walking, lovely scenery, not taxing at all... BUT...seriously be aware that just past the Medieval Church there were a herd of big brown cows that virtually cornered us, they just kept coming towards us and some got a trot on, at one point I was considering vaulting a barbed wire fence, my sister had previously done this walk and mentioned the same thing ! That aside....lovely walk
