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.

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

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

Great Cliff Top Trail

Nice steady one for the kids

Lovely walk and stunning views. The walk up the moor was quite challenging and certainly got the heart pumping but thoroughly enjoyed it.

fantastic walk.

great walk and fantastic views!

great walk with some fantastic views. The only down side is that the cafe is cash only and does not state anywhere about this.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

really worth a go. hard work and a lot of challenges on they way. what makes it even more fun.

Hi another great walk lovely views over newton dale and to leversham railway station instructions easy to follow again although just a minor point last sign to village up grassy hill which is hard to spot is on the left not right but will do walk again regards bailes

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.

Hi Another lovely walk instructions spot on again also the esk valley walk from castleton to grosmont is also very nice there are plenty of animals en-route and its close to railway and river esk regards bailes

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.
