Pinchinthorpe - Roseberry Topping - Hanging Stone
A five-mile circular walk from the visitor centre situated in Pinchinthorpe (near Guisborough), this walk climbs nearby Roseberry Topping, which dominates the surrounding countryside. For comparatively little effort the views from the peak of Roseberry are immense - from the North Sea the view stretches out in front of you towards the Pennines.
Roseberry Topping's now familiar shape is the result of a landslip in 1912, when the original, perfectly conical shape fell away.
Having taken in the vast views from the top of this sharp peak, the walk descends by the same route, then to climb Little Roseberry. The return route takes you down through Hutton Low Cross Forest via Hanging Stone, with its great and sudden view north towards Guisborough. The walk then continues to decend through the forest and reach the lane leading to Hutton Village.
It is at this point that the walk can be extended to climb additionally Highcliff Nab. This walk is detailed in a separate Walkingworld walk (ID 1595). To take this extension, join the next walk at Waymark 5 which will then lead you from this point to Highcliff Nab and back again. Both walks are excellent in their own right; joining the two together however, would provide a wonderful full day figure-of-eight walk with three spectacular viewpoints.
The walk concludes along the old railway route, back to the visitor centre at Pinchinthorpe.
