A Circular Walk from Whitby to Hawsker along the Cinder Track, Returning via Whitby Abbey
This walk is about 6 miles long and will take around 2 hours to complete. It’s half on the Cinder Track, which is relatively flat and accessible but can be muddy in places. The return leg is along the road between Hawsker and Whitby Abbey. It’s a quiet lane generally, but you’ll need to watch out for cars.
Circular Walk From Robin Hood's Bay to Bay Ness via The Cinder Track and The Cleveland Way
This walk takes around 2 hours to complete, at a leisurely pace. As the terrain can be quite hard-going in places - especially if it’s rained recently. It’s about 5km in length, or 3.5 miles. There are plenty of things to see, and some amazing views of the coastline. I think it’s best walked clockwise - as described below. However, there’s no reason not to tackle it the other way around.
Walking in Mulgrave Woods
Mulgrave woods is privately-owned woodland near Sandsend. It runs inland, running along the valley which lies below the village of Lythe. The woodland is owned and managed by Muglrave Estate. They have created a network of footpaths and trails within the woods. These paths provide plenty of options for walks - from a leisurely amble to a lengthier circular walk.
A Circular Walk From Whitby Whalebones to Ruswarp
This circular walk is around 4.5 miles in length, and takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It is partly on urban footpaths, and partly on a footpath which follows the railway line. It’s quite easy going, but because of the footpath section is not suitable for prams, or bikes.
A Circular Walk Through Newholm and Sandsend
This is a lovely circular walk. It’s about 5 miles in total, but could be shortened either by taking a more direct route back towards Whitby from Raithwaite Estate, or by getting the bus back from Sandsend.
