Cinder Track, Robin Hood's Bay, Coast to Coast
The path's title of "Cinder Track" inherits its name from the surface covering of cinder rather than crushed stone that would normally be used.
The length of the Cinder Track is 21 miles, although the section between Robin Hood's Bay and Hawker Bottoms is only 3 miles. The track is elevated above the Coast to Coast sufficient to allow panoramic views across Robin Hood's Bay and the North Sea. It is interesting to watch the large liners cruising along, not far out to sea.
The National Trust land at Bay Ness is worthwhile visiting, and is an interesting and attractive walk to the the rock formations of Bulmer Steel Hole, Ness Cheek, Ness Ruck, and the Cow & Calf, alongside the Coast to Coast path.
