Details

This is a short, moderate walk on a variety of surfaced and grass paths, with a maximum gradient of 1:12. This quiet coastal walk offers views north towards Scarborough and south to Filey. The slumped cliffs are heavily wooded and provide a haven for wildlife. Very few people, if any, venture down the cliffs; who knows, dinosaurs may still linger there!

The walk has no steps or stiles. Path conditions will vary depending on the weather.
