Help connect Whitby

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Whitby’s Slow Ways.

A great and scenic walk between the two resorts, excellent paths and only a few challenging rocky steps, not sure how it would fare in poor weather and strongly suggest not trying this in windy conditions....
