Hawsker to Robin Hood's Bay - North York Moors (approx 6 miles)

Map: Sheet OL27 North York Moors: Eastern Area
Start: Park on the roadside in the village of High Hawsker (929075)
Route: High Hawsker is about a mile across field paths to the Clevland Way. The coastal path contains a fair amount of climbing, as it dips up and down following the clifftops, however, the return journey is along a very gentle incline os a disused railway.

From the road junction in the village, follow the road north east. Take the bridlepath on the right, almost opposite the Hare and Hounds pub. It is situated just before a bus shelter and post box. The track soon crosses a bridge over the railway path. Follow the track to Gnipe Howe Farm. Here the bridlepath turns left, but the footpath we followed passes through a metal gate on the right, then crosses the corner of a field, to a stile. The path heads directly towards the cliff top.
Turn right to follow the Clevland Way along the clifftops until the path emerges in Mount Pleasant North, Robin Hood's Bay. From here we followed the road down........
... to explore the narrow alleways of the village.

After exploring the village, climb back up the hill, and walk back along Mount Pleasant North, but after the houses, turn left, following signs for the railway path. Once you are on this path, follow it until you pass a large, static caravan site on the left. Turn left along the road. Bear right when you come to the junction with the B1447, and follow this road back to Hawsker.
