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 is likely to be suitable for people with impaired mobility or with a pushchair, wheelchair or mobility scooter. The walk has no steps or stiles. Path conditions will vary depending on the weather.

The linear walk is virtually level for the whole 1 mile (1½km) route (there and back).

Nearest facilities
The nearest accessible toilets are at the Scarborough Sports Centre. This is about ½ mile from the walk on the A165 road towards Scarborough.
