I walked from Whitby to RBH - the trail would be more fun on a bike. Incredible views along the way.

Old railway track from Whitby to Scarborough via Robin Hoods Bay. Good surface for walking or cycling some lovely views not as hair raising as walking along the coast path but gives the option of a circular walk.
