Explorer Map OL26, - North York Moors (Western Area)

You don't need a map to enjoy this walk.
The outward leg between the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre and Sneck Yate follows a straight road, with wonderful views to the right of Newgate Bank, Eastersides, Hawnby Hill and Bilsdale Moor.
From Sneck Yate the Cleveland Way footpath is followed back to the Viisitor Centre.
Sections of the way bewteen Sneck Yate and the Visitor Centre are divided into cycle tracks and parallel footpaths. If you use a cycle track care is needed as cyclists have the right of way and can travel fast.
It is, of course, also possible to do the walk in reverse order (e.g. returning from Sneck Yate).
