About 45 miles if you make the full return trip. Not flat - surprisingly, but lovely views and a couple of places to stop for coffee in between. Signage is fair, but on a couple of occasions I needed to retrace my path to seek inconspicuous signs I'd missed. Will ride again.

Trails are in good condition and its not too strenuous if you are used to riding. Its good starting at either end, with the highest point in Ravenscar - the town that never happened. Robin Hoods Bay is worth a pit stop as well for a cuppa and scone. Also making a day of it by starting at one end,... More

This is a great walk which takes in Ravenscar and many of the other small villages along the way. Being an old railway line it is level and there are a couple of places for tea/coffee along the way. The railway continues North at Sansend in the car park at the north of the village

The cinder track runs 23 miles from Whitby to Scarborough via Robin Hood's Bay. It goes along a disused railway line. There are tunnels to go through and a long, high viaduct which goes over the River Esk and the North Yorkshire Moor railway track. It must have been a great feat of engineering in its day. Nowadays it provides... More

We stayed at Captain Cooks Haven and decided to walk the trail way to Robin Hoods Bay. It was a beautiful walk - lots of photographs were taken - particularly from Larpool viaduct. At Robin Hoods Bay we had fish and chips and a look around at the quaint little village and then we walked back to Whitby. (Slightly harder... More

Walking the old Railway track from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay crossing the Larpool Viaduct 120metres above the Esk Valley with magnificent views of Whitby. 6 Miles of delightful countryside.

I along with four others were cycling from Hartlepool to Scarborough in one day following the coast as much as possible. This was my second ride along the Cinder Track, for the others it was a first. The Cinder Track follows the trackbed of the Whitby - Scarborough railway and starts near the town centre at Whitby with you first... More

A lovey easy walk from Whitby to Robinhoods Bay. Great views into Eskvalley from viaduct over River. With more time we will walk towards Scarborough and perhaps even hire a bike. A bit lonely in parts but well signposted all the way.

Lovely and easy walking (or bike riding) with stop off places like Hayburn Wyke, Ravenscar and Robin Hoods Bay. This is a trac that can be walked in all weathers if it is too wet or icy to coast walk.
