This was an enjoyable walk however must admit went a little off and made bits up ourselves. The walk to or from the steps is best done early in morning as it’s full of people and loses what otherwise would be

I couldnt find any instructions on the walk, only the map, so found it a little hard to navigate in places, especially as there are some wrong turns on the map (and a bit where they clearly detoured to look round the Whitby Brewery!). Some of the roads were very narrow and, in some places, busy with cars and I didn't enjoy walking down those. Overall, not a favourite.

Really enjoyed the first 3 quarters of this walk. The last bit is all along road which seems a bit odd as you could easily double back into the track next to the railway line that you take on the way into Whitby at the beginning. I think it’s to make it a proper loop, but next time we’ll cut back onto the railway line path on the way back. Gorgeous views from the cliffs, and it’s stunning walking into Whitby from Ruswarp!

Was a lovely day out and good to see a different side of Whitby, although I do prefer walks with more off road trails.

We didn’t start from Ruswarp we parked in the Abbey car park and started out along the coast. This is a varied walk along coastal paths, minor roads and shale paths along the railway lines. There are some up hill bits but nothing too taxing. Very enjoyable with a nice earn pint back at the Whitby Brewery adjacent the Abbey.
