Circular and Linear Walks

A coastal view from the Cleveland Way

Circular and Linear Walks

This 5¼ mile / 8.5km walk uses the Cleveland Way National Trail along the Sutton Bank escarpment, which means you can enjoy outstanding views across the Vale of Mowbray to the distant Yorkshire Dales. It also takes in some of the Sutton Bank ‘Cliff’ cycle route, which winds through the woods and across the fields.

There are no steps or stiles and so the walk is likely to be suitable for people with a wheelchair, mobility scooter, hand cycle mountain bikes or mountain trikes.
