Cleveland Way National Trail
171 km / 106 miles
Cleveland, N Yorks
The Way climbs to the North York Moors at Sutton Bank, where there is a short extension to the Kilburn White Horse, and then heads north along the western edge of the high heather moors to Osmotherley from where it follows tracks along the northern escarpment to Greenhow Moor. It turns over Kildale Moor, Roseberry Topping and Guisborough Moor to leave the North York Moors National Park and to reach the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea then following a varied and undulating coastal path southwards along clifftops, sands and passing several harbours and resorts.
This roughly horse-shoe shaped trail has led to the development of suggested routes linking the start and finish including the waymarked Tabular Hills Link Walk (48 miles). Relevant publications for the link are listed. The Cleveland Way and Yorkshire Wolds Way meet at Filey, enabling a longer continuous route on National Trails.
Cleveland Circles enables the route of the Cleveland Way to be walked as circular day-walks.
The waymarked Cleveland Street Walk (11 miles), which is included on OS mapping, connects Guisborough with Loftus (and easy access to the coast/Cleveland Way National Trail), crossing the Cleveland Way National Trail inland at Slapewath to provide alternative options.
The LDWA National Trails Register offers certificates for completers of several British National Trails.
