The Cinder Track

The Cinder Track, between Scarborough and Whitby, is a popular off road route through the North York Moors National Park, just inland from the stunning North Yorkshire coast.

The 21.5 miles of track is a former railway line, which transported goods and passengers up and down the coast between 1885 and 1965.

Today, with the sights and sounds of trains a distant memory, the picturesque and dog friendly route is regularly used by walkers, horse riders and cyclists.

Restoration plan

A plan to restore the Cinder Track was agreed following public consultation in 2018. Improvement works on the Whitby end of the track began in January 2020. Updates coming soon.
