There is the Cider Track footpath along the old disused railway line. The coast path is lovely, but up and down and not too even under foot at times.

To go north on the cinder track turn right out of Hooks Farm and when you see the Grosvenor Hotel infront of you turn left onto Mount Pleasant North. The cinder track is at the end of that.

To go south the quickest way is on the public footpath at the bottom of the Hooks site. Down the field usually full of sheep, it comes out practically opposite the start of the southern cinder track.

For a circular run you could go on the southern track till you reach the tarmacked Middlewood Lane. Turn right and follow it to the very end. Across the road you will see Thorpe Stores. Cross over and follow this road up hill all the way back to St Stephens Old church. From there you will see the main road to your left. Turn right on the main road back to Hooks Farm.

Personally I prefer the southern track (have walked both North and South on numerous occasions ) because there are several 'exits' that you can make a circular walk out of back to Robin Hoods Bay.

Hope this helps.

If you haven't been to the area before you will love it. There are plenty of public footpaths and little lanes. You can't go wrong. Enjoy.
