Recommended Route & More on the Cleveland Way
The Cleveland Way walk was officially opened in 1969 and is one of the most varied and interesting footpaths in this country. It is just over 100 miles long and goes from Helmsley in the west to Filey in the east. However the walk is not as simple as this; the distance from Helmsley to Filey by road is just over 30 miles by the direct route. The Cleveland Way follows a much more varied route following three sides of the moors and the coastline before it arrives at Filey. Below is a guide onto to which route you might take and which towns and villagers you may choose to stop in. The Cleveland Way is very well signposted for most of its length but I recommend that you take with an OS map just in-case.
Although 9 or 10 days is the suggested time for the walk there is so much beautiful scenery and history it is well worth taking your time over.
