Join Steven and the OutdoorLads for a hike up to the highest point on the Cleveland Hills for an elevated prospect of far North Yorkshire looking out over the Cleveland plain and to the distant Pennines in Yorkshire and County Durham.

The route sets off climbing steeply on to the tracks over the moors to follow the edge of the steep downfall and eventually crossing the remnants of the old Iron Stone railway line, part of this heritage site the group previously visited in a walk in summer. 

The route is mostly on wider tracks and quiet country lanes and is ideally suited to the current circumstances and is largely on the Cleveland Way long distance path.

The walk is of a moderate classification, there will be plenty of stops along the way for photographs and refreshments, it is worth noting that this is still quite a lengthy walk with many sections on the level but a quicker pace will be in order with the reduced daylight hours so I would advise the event is not ideal for a beginner, anyone with a good level of fitness should have no problem completing this.

So good people if you feel you really need to escape to the country in good company, breathe in the fresh air and are eager to get to know the far north of the North York Moors National Park join us here.

There will be several walks of varying lengths close to this area in the coming months so please keep a lookout for all of these, fingers crossed we will not be on the tier three lockdown.
