The Cleveland Way National Trail is a 109 mile that traverses through the North York Moors as well as the edge the North Sea. From Helmsley, the Cleveland Way heads across the beautiful heather moorland of the national park, before reaching the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea
These walks from our take in sections of the coastal parts of the National Trail as part of their route.
