Cleveland Way favourite named Yorkshire's Finest Mountain

31st January 2014
It may be small in stature but Roseberry Topping, dubbed Yorkshire’s Matterhorn for its distinctive shape, has been named one of the UK’s favourite peaks for hillwalkers.
The 1,049ft Topping, on the North York Moors, came 16th in a survey by walking magazine Trail - the highest place for a Yorkshire hill - with Yorkshire Dales peaks Ingleborough 22nd and Pen-y-Ghent 69th.
Malcolm Hodgson the Cleveland Way National Trails Officer said "I am not surprised that Roseberry Topping has such a place in the hearts of walkers.  It is a truly iconic feature, which can be seen for miles around.  It is not too much of a challenge to climb and the reward is stunning views and a huge sense of satisfaction.
We include a Roseberry Topping walk in our Try a Trail series.  You can download a map and full route descriptions here.
