North York Moors Walk
Roseberry Topping and Captain Cook's Monument
Walk Route Description
This enjoyable North York Moors walk combines two notable features of the northern part of this National Park into one walk. The first objective, Roseberry Topping, can be very busy with visitors so if you value your peace and quiet then make an early start. Having gained some height the onward route to Captain Cook's Monument provides good views.
We started at the car park (Grid ref. NZ570128) on the A171 road and followed the path (Roseberry Lane) easterly. We took the direct path to the summit of Roseberry Topping (Grid ref. NZ578125). Descending eastwards follow the Clevaland Way behind Slacks Wood and down to the car park (Grid ref. NZ592109) on the lane above Great Ayton station. Leaving the car park, and the ice cream van, it was south and uphill to Captain Cook's Monument (Grid ref. NZ589101) where we watched the paragliders and did a bit of exploration. The return follows the outward route.
Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers
