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.
