The walk starts at the Water Park on the North Bay in Scarborough. After a stretch along the prom, we cross Scalby Beck and climb steeply up to the cliffs.

From here, it's a bracing cliff-edge walk for the next three miles. Then we cut inland on a quiet road towards Cloughton, where you have a choice either to continue into the village and get one of the regular buses back into Scarborough, or pick up the Whitby to Scarborough Trailway. This is a disused railway line converted for leisure use. The walking is flat and the miles just melt away.

After passing through Scalby Village, the Trailway soon leads us into Scarborough. Here we walk through residential streets to Peasholm Park, with its pagodas and large boating lake.

Dog-walkers please note the presence of cyclists on the Trailway and some steep steps that short-legged dogs may struggle with. There are no stiles whatsoever.

We did this walk on Saturday just gone 28/1/2917 and enjoyed it. It's a bit muddy at this time of year particularly along the cliff tops and there are a few areas of erosion but the local farmers appear to be taking this into account by leaving a decent amount of space on the edges of their fields. There is also a café and toilets roughly halfway round at the old station at Cloughton (sadly not open at this time of year). Would definitely recommend as a summer walk.
