COASTAL IN THE KNOW: COASTAL WALKS The North Yorkshire coast is a great destinatio­n for dramatic coastal walking and also, in these times, a place to find some solitude. The Cleveland Way National Trail (110 miles/177km) combines beautiful moorland and coastal walking in one continuous waymarked route between Helmsley and Filey. If you want to make an adventure of it, go full circle: head inland from the outskirts of Scarboroug­h and follow the 48 mile Tabular Hills route back to Helmsley. Alternativ­ely, you can just dip in for a day and do a Try a Trail walk. There’s the 6 mile (9.7km) Ravenscar Round and the 4.8 mile (7.8km) Osmotherle­y Ramble, or have a go at the Roseberry Topping trek. A whole stretch of the Yorkshire Coast around 49 miles long, between Staithes and Flamboroug­h Head, is known as the Dinosaur Coast with fossils going back an impressive 120 million years. From the National Trust Coastal Centre at Ravenscar, follow a trail pointing out the sites of interest to fossil hunters. Check out the organised fossil hunting trips from Whitby, and Scarboroug­h’s Rotunda Museum also has exhibition­s and Dinosaur Coast events. If you’re heading out, a great place to find more informatio­n on walks and events – when they come back to life – is the walks section of discoveryo­rkshirecoa­st.com Yorkshire Life: October 2020 89 Š
