This is a gentle full-day excursion covering 12.5 km. Numerous recognized paths and bridleways allow the route to be easily altered, shortened, lengthened or taken in reverse order. Park in Great Ayton, near the Tourist Information Office [NZ 563 107], or at the Gribdale Gate car park [NZ 593 110], which is usually used for visits to the Cook Monument. Theft from cars is a serious risk at more remote sites. If travelling by train, Great Ayton station [NZ 575 108] is on the line from Middlesbrough, via Nunthorpe and the Esk valley, to Whitby. There are toilets, cafes and pubs in Great Ayton, but no other facilities en route.
