Stage one from Helmsley-Sutton Bank (10m (16Km ) is the ideal introduction to the trail, keep a eye out for the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, the Hambleton Down racecourse, the White Horse of Kilburn and finally Sutton Bank, described by author James Herriot as ‘the finest in England’.

Route maps, drinks and toilets can be found at Sutton Bank Visitor Centre.

As you progress through the various stages expect to be treated to spectacular views, castles and historic artefacts, fishing villages and sandy coves.

Highlights include Mount Grace Priory, Captain Cook’s Monument, Staithes harbour and the ruins of Whitby Abbey, to name but a few.

Your journey will take you over moorland, through forest and down cobbled streets, many of which offer public transport for tired feet.
