A walk through 109 miles of superb North Yorkshire scenery. Opened in 1969 the walk follows the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Starting in the market town of Helmsley, the first 60 miles is walked over spectacular moorland which is at its glorious best in late summer when the heather is in full bloom. The final 50 miles follows the North Sea coastline from Saltburn to Filey. It is a popular long distance path.
