A distance of 18km/11.25 miles. 619m of ascent good paths, a few shorter climbs one steep with steps

Join Steven, Dave and the OutdoorLads for the third in a series of  linear day walks exploring the North York Moors and following the White Rose Walk to the official end point at 'Teesside's Matterhorn' Roseberry Topping.

The route today mostly follows the Cleveland Way long distance path undulating over Kildale Moor, Easby Moor and Great Ayton Moor on clearly defined wide tracks before the final steep ascent up to the small but perfectly formed 320m peak. 

The climb from Kildale ascends through woodland and will bring the group to an obelisk celebrating the life achievements of Captain Cook who spent his childhood in this area .  It is a popular walk destination for the nearby population and offers far reaching extensive views to the north and west in particular.

Roseberry Topping lies in an area managed by the National Trust and the slopes are clothed in woodland to the  northern side with patches of woodland and bracken to the other points of the compass. A severe vertical drop to the northwest exposes the underlying sandstone that was revealed in a landslide many years ago.

We will continue to end in the nearby village for a celebratory drink especially if you had managed to complete all three days in the walk series.

This walk can be done as part of a series or just as a day walk click here for day one details and notes about nearby accommodation and here for day two details
