The what3words address takes you to Station Road where there is usually ample roadside parking if the old station car park is full.

This is a pleasant four mile walk that sets off south-east along the old railway line (the Cinder Track) before looping to the coast for the return leg along the Cleveland Way. You can turn this into a longer walk, roughly doubling it, if you continue along the Cinder Track to Hayburn Wick and then pick up the coast path. There is a notice board with various walking route suggestions, including the longer version of this walk, near the National Trust Coast Centre. We’d already walked four miles to get here and so took the shorter option. The path between the Cinder Track and the coast was very boggy when we walked it and good boots are a necessity.

The coastal section of the walk passes the remains of the Ravenscar Radar Station which was constructed as part of a coastal defence radar system in 1941. Most of the original sites were demolished after the war and so this is an interesting survivor. It is in the care of the National Trust and there is public access to the site.
