Great Railway Walk

This is a brilliant walk (or cycle) through a terrific variety of scenery. The viaduct across the Esk in Whitby is incredible. A lovely walk any time of year.

Have walked various parts of this trailway over a number of years and enjoyed it every time.. The good thing about this is that you can choose to start wherever you want and walk or cycle for the length of time it suits you. This time we wanted to walk over the Larpool Viaduct which was very pleasant. You don't... More

We rode the cinder track in October. From Robin Hood Bay to Whitby one day and then to Cloughton the next day. The tea room in the former station there is well worth a visit. The track has the potential to be a really exceptional ride. The views are brilliant especially around Ravenscar and north of RHB. Having two decent... More

I rode the Cinder Track as part of an organised ride on a sunny Sunday in October. Starting at Robin Hoods Bay, I rode North to Whitby, then south as far as Scalby, then back north to finish at Robin Hoods Bay. This is a distance of 38 miles (as in effect I rode it twice). Riding the full length... More

On holiday in Whitby at the end of September, thought it would be nice to cycle along the cinder path. Despite the website clearly stating that they were open until November, we rang them left a message advising that we were interested in hiring a bike and enquiring about their opening hours. Didn't even receive the courtesy of a call.... More

This is the second time we have cycled on this trail and it is an excellent warm up for some of the more serious Yorkshire countryside. The track is generally very good, and the coastal scenery of Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and the east coast is excellent. Good because you can do it in varied length return sections.

A well cared for trail, which runs from Whitby town centre, through High Hawkser, Robin Hoods Bay, Ravenscar, ending at either Scalby or Scarborough centre. Tea rooms at Hawkser (bike hire too), RHB, Ravenscar, and Hayburn Wyke (pub here too). 22 miles in length, with some long gradients, interesting bridges & old stations, and one or two rough patches.
