Summary: The Eskdale Way is a walk which explores the coastal regions, lowlands and uplands of Eskdale, one of the most beautiful valleys within the North York Moors National Park. The Eskdale Way begins in the much loved fishing port of Whitby and heads inland along the northern side of the valley via Ruswarp, Sleights, Egton Bridge, Glaisdale, Lealholm Moor, Beacon Hill, Danby, Castleton, Commondale and Gisborough Moor before returning to the south side of valley at Kildale via Codhill Heights. The return route to the south of the dale visits Great Hograh Moor, Westerdale Moor, Farndale Moor, Danby High Moor, Glaisdale Moor and Delvesbefore arriving back in Egton Bridge. From here the way returns to Whitby via In Moor, Wheeldale Moor, Simon Howe, Goathland Moor, Darnholm, Eskdaleside, Iburndale, Ugglebarnby and Whitby Laithes before a final enjoyable coast walk which includes the Whitestone Point Lighthouse, Black Nab, Saltwich Nab and Whitby Abbey leads the way down back to the where it all started in Whitby.
