Cleveland Way

Length >60km
Max transport gap <20km

A walk of 177km between Helmsley and Filey Brigg.

The National Trail crosses the North York Moors between Helmsley and Saltburn, and follows the coast between Saltburn and Filey. The given distance is measured to/from the railway station at Filey, rather than the Brigg. Public transport connections (25 locations, 1 matrix) are available at key staging points along the route. Base station candidates for the coastal section home in on Whitby and Scarborough; the inland options are more fractured.


Walkers should note that on the inland sections, links to public transport may require a significant loss of height to reach (and a consequent steep ascent to retrieve the walk route). Not all services are frequent.
