Walk Description

Any walk along the Yorkshire Coast is undulating and varied. This is no exception. Starting at Saltburn there is a steep climb to start with as you follow the Cleveland Way which sticks close to the cliffs.

Skinningrove is an old fishing village which offers a great contrast with Saltburn, more of a Victorian tourist hot spot! The return is a little inland and takes in the lovely viewpoint of Warsett Hill and the Old Railway which used to link all the coastal towns.
