The Cleveland Way follows a route of 110 miles through beautiful landscapes and ever-changing scenery and was the second National Trail to be established in the UK (the Pennine Way was first), officially opening in 1969.

The contrast between the open heather-clad moorlands and the high coastal cliffs means that the trail is essentially two completely different walking experiences.

Beginning in the attractive market town of Helmsley, The Cleveland Way heads across the spectacular heather moorland of the North York Moors National Park before reaching the coast at Saltburn-by-the-Sea. From here it is a magnificent coastal walk along the dramatic and rugged North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast to the seaside town of Filey, passing through beautiful, old fishing villages and lively coastal towns on the way.
