Happy 50th Birthday to the Cleveland Way National Trail

This year marks a very special year for the Cleveland Way National Trail and allows us to look back on a great 50 years. 

Alan Falconer’s early edition official Cleveland Way Guide suggests that the push for a Cleveland Way came through the YHA and the Middlesbrough Rambling Club. The YHA saw an opportunity to link many of their hostels on this new trail that would encompass the wonderful landscapes of the North York Moors and in particular its fine contrast of heather moorland and coastal landscape, which today makes it such a favourite amongst walkers and runners alike.

Amongst the highlights for the year has been the production of the “Cleveland Way Collection” booklet, describing 50 great experiences to enjoy along the trail.
