The Cleveland Way is a fantastic route for walking and in parts cycling and horse riding through the ever-changing scenery of the North York Moors National Park.
This section describes our suggested 'Top Ten' experiences for you to enjoy along the Trail.
From the attractive market town of Helmsley, across inspirational and often vibrant heather moorland, to the characterful coastline at Saltburn. From there it’s a visual feast along the dramatic North Yorkshire coastline, passing old fishing villages and lively coastal towns.
The trail covers a total of 109 miles, but of course you don’t have to do it all at once! There are fantastic days out to be enjoyed along its course, a selection of which are described below.

What to bring with you
We recommend downloading and printing a copy of our easy-to-follow walking maps, which are available for each 'Top Ten' destination along the Trail. You'll find links to download the walking maps on the pages listed below.
Suitable outdoor clothing and footwear are also recommended. A map of the area is useful but not essential (Ordnance Survey map number OL26 and OL27). You might like to bring a pair of binoculars for spotting wildlife. You could also purchase the new A-Z Adventure Atlas for the Cleveland Way available form National Trial shop.
