The Cleveland Way stretches for over 100 miles from Helmsley, on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, to Filey on the east coast. The way passes through two very distinct types of landscape; from Helmsley to Saltburn-by-the-Sea. It traverses classic moorland scenery; through forests and along escarpments, giving the walker panoramic views over the Cleveland Hills and the rest of the National Park. The other half of the route, from Saltburn-by-the-Sea to Filey, follows a dramatic coastline and runs along the top of some of the highest sea cliffs in the country.
