Epic walk. Does get bit dull in the middle but the scramble down the waterfall was epic ! Such a stunning day !

Really lovely walk - quite hilly at the beginning. Ramblers Rest is closed on a Tuesday through summer as we found out today!

Completed this 9 times now. Night time Day wind snow had it all Hard on your feet nice challenge and if your in time full English in the cafe with a pint mug of coffee

Left Serin House, a lovely B&B in Danbe Wiske at 8:45. Hiked through and around fields and over narrow country lanes. Kept rendezvousing with C2C we had met at the White Swan Inn. Good trail vibes. Arrived at The Blue Bell Inn in time for lunch. Our shortest day.

Lovely trail. Lots of wild life. Good cafe half way through

Steep climb from the car park but worth every step ,amazing views once at the top. Great to see the white horse

nice and easy walk. most difficult part is 1 high sty

This is a nice walk but spoiled with the paths crossing the fields on the Estate. They have been ploughed and reseeded with cereal crops leaving no real path. Prepare to get wet if it is raining. Also not well indicated in some places with broken stile crossings. Not suitable for dogs as you need to lift them at the fence styles.

lovely walk

A fairly straightforward route with one hilly ascent (or descent depending on the way you tackle this). One stretch of the walk along the field perimeter is a tad uneventful and Barney the Border Terrier was quite happy off lead most of the time but be aware of sheep and cattle in open fields. Two refreshment stops were most welcome - The Corner Cafe in Kirkbymoorside did a nice cuppa and cake and The Royal Oak Pub in Gillamoor has a homely feel and a good selection of local beer.

Easy flat/level walking in pleasant environment. All footpaths decked so suitable for wheel chairs and prams. Footpath follows the shallow river.

We took this walk in May, persevere with the first stretch through the woods, although quite steep the rest of the walk was mostly downhill or flat!! The scenery was stunning and walking back along the river to Kirkham was wonderful. Our dogs loved the walk, mostly off leads, for a good run. Thoroughly recommend!

Nice walk taking just over one hour. Some of the pathway is overgrown so nettles can be a problem. Also there was a fenced barrier blocking one place so had to make a small detour and climb over a fence.

Beautiful carpets of bluebells and aromatic wild garlic mid-May. Good directions overall but sometimes difficult to gauge distance due to nature of trail and to distinguish the correct path through the woods. Although muddy in places after recent rain, it was easy to make little detours to avoid the worst.

A great walk to get away from the crowds at Fewston , however dogs on leads 40% of the time due to the farm animals in some of the fields but apart from that it’s highly recommended

great day probably one of my favourite hikes so far, out wear some good boots!

Great easy walk. You may have to walk through a field of cows, that did say beware of the bull. We didn't experience any problems, but it did worry some of our group. The walk through the bluebell woods in the second part was beautiful. We finished at the pub and had Sunday lunch. This was very nice although a bit pricey for a pub. On the plus side, they welcomed the dog in the bar with a bowl of water and a treat.

amazing walk will be back to climb waterfall

very nice walk lovely views moors path rugged very steep descent into great fryup dale would be tricky if wet underfoot but would do walk again

My favourite walk of all time. Once the 300 steps are out of the way it's all down hill! Fabulous family walk with lots to see.

Great views! Well worth the walk up challenging steps! Great location, watched some mountain climbers when we went which was great to watch. Excited to go back and explore more

Had a nice walk here the best bit for me was climbing the waterfall on the way round.

Great walk, though part of it is on the road which can be busy.

Another great walk. With smashing views of the North Yorkshire coast line.

A alternative starting point, park your vehicle on the Cinder track on bottoms lane Hawsker. You can then walk down onto the cliff tops joining the Cleveland way walk. Walking south will take you onto Robin Hood’s bay. There’s some great views of the English coast line and nothing better on a warm sunny day. . I recommend the walk be done on a dry day. There are sections which become muddy. There’s many places in Robin Hood’s bay to eat. The Victoria hotel makes a smashing Sunday lunch. Beware of the canon at 12.00 noon. With a full stomach you can return along the cinder track towards Whitby. Occasionally you may see deer & other wildlife Enjoy your walk. I hope I may return once more.
