We cycled along the Cinder trail from Whitby to Robin Hood Bay with our 6 and 7 year old. It is a lovely slightly off road route, perfect day trip for the kids with fish and chips for lunch in Robin Hood Bay. It was really quiet - saw 2 other cyclists and a few walkers. Best done this way... More

Although it was raining we decided to walk along the cinder track from Whitby to Robins Hood Bay. It was easy walking and took us about 2 hours. We walked back along the Cleveland Way, unfortunately due to the heavy rain in the morning it wasnj't so easy and took us 3hrs!!

We cycled from Scarborough to Whitby on the Saturday, stayed in a b&b that night, then cycled back the next day. Signage is excellent and some of the views are spectacular - but there are several sections of the trail which badly need maintenance (e.g south of Robin's Hood Bay as the trail starts to climb gradually to Ravenscar, and...

Did this walk today, really enjoyed it. Stopped halfway at cycle hire for a drink. The views were beautiful and the track flat and easy to navigate. Lots of wildlife on the way, and different views, forest, fields, rivers and sea. I imagine it could get quite muddy after a lot of rain. I tracked the distance and it was... More

This is a very pleasant walk and very easy going when compared to the coast path, and would have been great if we'd got our bikes.

We walked the 6 or 7 miles from Whitby to RHB. Nice flat path for easy walks, with occasional nice views. Path edges is a little overgrown in places, but wide enough. A bike rental place nearer the start in Whitby could be an improvement.

This is a great place to visit-good British history, fascinating subjects and displays. What brave explorers, sailing into the unknown in days gone by. Visit this place you will like it.

It never fails to surprise me when I visit Scarborough to find it thronged like seasides always used to be back in the old days! I find myself just taking photos of the crowds to prove to friends & family how popular this place is. It is clean & safe, the beach is lovely & the amusements are fun! It... More

In truth on such a nice named path, it's a pity trains don't still run on what would be a very scenic line.
