Book Tickets Online


Start is at Sutton Bank Visitor Centre, SE514829, where there is ample car parking, accessible toilets and café. Overnight stay and electricity are possible by application.

The route heads south on the escarpment to the Kilburn White Horse with stunning views of James Heriot country.

The pathway is a level smooth well maintained surface with numerous seats and viewpoints. The route then follows the southern edge of the Gliding club field swinging north past the Yorkshire Gliding clubhouse.

It joins the High Town Bank road then crosses the A170. It then enters Hambleton Plantation joining the well-marked, well maintained cycle path which will be signposted as disabled routes. However, the cycle route does provide a more interesting surface with small rises, twists and turns to enjoy!

The route then joins the Cold Kirkby road from Sutton Bank top. At this point you can return to the visitor Centre for lunch.

Follow the road for approximately half a mile, part being on a separate fenced path. At Dialstone House we join a bridleway heading West for 500 yards. At High Quarry plantation there are 2 options. Straight on to join the Cleveland Way at Whitestone Cliff or due north following Cleave Dike to join the Cleveland Way at SE509849 or 510850. The return route to Sutton Bank follows the Cleveland Way and enjoys both stunning views and information boards
