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.

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...

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

Great easy route with incredible coastal views. Highly recommended.

Nice walk with a bit of everything. Lake, woods and a great view when you walk along towards the top path.

Enjoyable walk, we went off track twice as well, first time we used the “find my location services” to get back on it but the second time my phone had died so ended up using my husbands phone and he had to use his “find my car” app which thank the lord for us got us back to the car albeit on the road. The weather didn’t help as it rained all day and was very foggy but can’t do a lot about that. NB. When it says just past the Fox & Hounds take the bridleway on the right, it is about 1 mile away from there along the road, for some reason that well threw us

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.

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

Nice steady one for the kids

fantastic walk.

Beautiful walk on level forest tracks with fantastic views. Highly recommend.

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

Hi lovely walk through woods and views over harwood dale fantastic, quite an easy walk, instructions easy to follow again would recommend this one, regards bailes

Did half of this route, backwards. We were staying in a house in the farm lands just before you get to number 4 on the map. Headed back along the route, using the GPS map to check the route, and then at 2 walked through Alnthorpe to Danby along the very quiet roads. Pint in the Duke of Wellington, then looped north east from Danby back to the National Park Centre and then back through 4 to the house. Nice walk, very quiet.

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk, views are spectacular, we did go off the track twice but thankfully the map view got us back on the right road. Will definitely walk this one again.

Hello another great walk stunning views done this walk twice now instructions easy to follow one of best I have done regards bailes

A great little walk quite hard in parts as per instructions but still very enjoyable fantastic views all round regards bailes

great walk, chicken fence still there just on right is a dirt track as other people have said also car parking fees have gone up to £5-00 for 6 hrs or more you can park on roadside nearby for nothing just be careful where you park instructions spot on again for walk

A Lovely walk. There's a variety of flora and fauna to see. The walk to the river was my favourite part.

Hi, did this walk this morning, a fantastic walk, highly recommended, lovely woodlands, steep hill isnt to bad, instructions spot on again, construction work at point 5 still ongoing, regards Bailes

did this walk yesterday, it was a lovely walk, a bit muddy but thats only to be expected this time of the year, would recommend it

l did this walk on tues 6/11/2018 used gps tracker for first time and instructions were very clear a very nice walk mainly flat but very muddy in parts would recommend this walk Regards Peter

My first walk using this fantastic app, BRILLIANT.

We are staying at the Fox & Hounds so easy to start from there, instructions very easy to follow, we made it back in about 51/2hours...

Have to agree with previous comments, the path wasn't great. It was a warm day and rightly or wrongly I wore shorts - my legs are badly scratched and stung. Also the second field we crossed was occupied by cattle who took a dislike to our entering their territory and decided to run at us. Luckily we made it out in one piece by the skin of our teeth! We definitely won't be repeating this walk.

The ravines have steep steps, so care is needed. Some steps are uneven stone, others are soil retained by wooden boards which may be a little loose. I would recommend a walking pole. Stunning views over the sea, with wave-cut platforms visible at low tide. There is access to beaches, but these may be overgrown with thistles and nettles in the summer. The Station Cafe at Cloughton is only open Saturday to Wednesday, even during summer school holiday, but is lovely if you can visit.

As above problems with the game pen. The OS shows a right of way but the path marked on the OS differs slightly. Next time I will review the advice above with a view to following the exact route. ADMIN UPDATE 26 JUNE 2018: Thank you for confirming that the pheasant pen still sits across part of the footpath. We have updated the walking guide to give an alternative route after the footbridge for walkers that would prefer to avoid this.
