Outdoor activities


Wandelen 


De omgeving rond het dorp High Hawsker is een van de mooiste en meest gevarieerde gebieden om te wandelen. Wandelingen over kliftoppen geven je spectaculaire uitzichten. In de omgeving van ‘Falling Foss’ en ‘May Beck’ kun je genieten van geluiden van de waterval, stroompjes en de wind in het bos.


 Er zijn verschillende wandelroutes. In de directe omgeving kun je een van de rondwandelingen maken door Robin Hoods Bay. Ook kun je langs de oude treinroute naar Whitby of Robin Hoods Bay wandelen. Uiteraard is deze buiten gebruik. De nabij gelegen ‘Moors’ zijn ook zeer geschikt om per voet te verkennen.


 Andere populaire wandelroutes langs de kust zijn o.a. ‘Six of the best walks’. Deze rondwandelingen zijn gebaseerd op de route van de ‘Cleveland Way’. Een van deze wandeling gaat via High Hawsker. De wandeltochten variëren van 10 tot 16 km. Als je meer wilt weten over de ‘Cleveland Way’, ga dan naar www.nationaltrail.co.uk/cleveland-way
