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.

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
