The Yorkshire Wolds Way Trail first goes west along the River Humber and then north around the western edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, in woods and across arable land through Huggate & Thixendale, and along the northern escarpment of the Wolds that rises to over 600ft. It travels on ridges and through dry valleys and sheep pasture to reach the coast at Filey and the fine headland of Filey Brigg.
The ancient city of York is a short drive away down Garrowby Hill into the surrounding vale. To the east is the magnificent Yorkshire Coastline with Whitby, Scarborough, Filey, and Bridlington with RSPB Bempton Cliffs dotted down the coastline, and to the north the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors.
