Description by the author

Try this 7.6-km circular trail near Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 2 h 34 min to complete. This trail is great for birding, hiking, and running.

This route includes two of the North York Moors most unique peaks in the area. Start the walk at the car park on Dikes Lane and head south toward Easby Moor. After about 1 km you will arrive at Captain Cook's monument, which is dedicated to the navigator, sailor, explorer, and captain who attended school nearby in Great Ayton. Next, begin the descent to the north, crossing Fir Brook and Dikes Lane. Take Aireyholme Lane and continue along the route to Roseberry Topping, which offers great views of the surrounding countryside. Then, follow the route east in the direction of Little Roseberry before the trail turns south back towards the starting point.
