Lovely walk. Unfortunately it's very overgrown down by the river.

Lovely walk across fields, through woodland and on quiet roads. Slightly overgrown in places, but we wore shorts and didn't get any leg scratches. Ideal for dogs, with a couple of streams for a drink and a couple of fields which required dogs to be on leads. No cattle in the fields but there were some sheep. Great walk.

Beautiful walks through the woodlands. Your dog can be off the lead most of the time and suitable for kids.

The path was overgrown and finally we had to stop and return after one 1 mile, so the first one mile of this walk it is recommended to take an alternative path...

Very good walk. Had a bit of everything- woodland, fields and river bank. The river bank was overgrown and single track (you wouldn’t want to meet someone coming in the other direction). Very handy spot to park your car by Kirkham Priory.

Walked this route on a sunny day in July. Overgrown along the riverbank, but the rest of the walk was very pleasant. If you are looking for a walk with varied terrain, this ones for you. River banks, wheat fields, country road, farmers fields and woodland. Our dog loved this walk and so did we!

Walked this trail in July. It started off well, beautiful views and the route was clear, then as the walk went on we found it very overgrown in parts, full of tall nettles in areas and we had to tread very carefully over rocky streams (even the dog had to be carried in parts!) However, this was a very picturesque hike!

Great walk until you have to cut back along the stream/river edge. We did it in July and it’s very overgrown, full of nettles and boggy under foot. Stunning views on the rest of the walk though!

great trail

decent trail but be cautious in the sunny weather as there's no shade.

Walked it today the paths from the river to Low Catton are a bit overgrown. Watch for the thistles and nettles of you have shorts on.

Nice easy walk, with sea and woodlands on route and with some great photo opportunities on the way. I did this walk today and I had long trousers on, which was a great choice because it was a bit overgrown in places but still really enjoyed the walk.

good walk this one , do the cinder track section first if you don't want to do the very steep climbs up hill when you get to Scarborough Road, look out for the Peacock farm as well :)

brilliant hike but train as much as possible and make sure boots fit properly and are worn in. Will make the day much more enjoyable.

Not signposted from road on last section.

Great walk with a few attractions, old ruins, waterfalls and fountain. It has a few steep places to climb so not just a flat promenade. The dog loved it as well.

scramble

A fantastic trail when done anticlockwise. The scramble about 3.5km in is intense and not for low-flexibility walkers. It has fantastic views and paths are in very good condition.

touth little hike . did it today in aid of bhf. paths are loose and rocky. not one for new hikers. will do it again..

Nice quick stroll for my brother and I, actually did two laps, first time up the steps, then the opposite way round. Good work out up the hills. Glorious day helped the amazing view from the top.

Did this hike with my partner (we both recently got into hiking) this afternoon and managed to finish it within 2hours. The trail is primarily comprised of several flights of steps that lead you from one waterfall to the next. I would definitely recommend this walk to anyone wanting to have a good time whilst enjoying a series of scenic landscapes. There are also a number of spots in which you could have a picnic or stop to enjoy a cold ice-cream (from the ice-cream van). There is a £7.00pp entrance fee which is quite expensive especially for larger families.
