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.

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
