The Ruswarp Round Circular Route and The Waterside Café

The Ruswarp Round Circular Route is a walking path going through both Ruswarp and Whitby. Pass through Fishburn Park, Boghall and past Esk Valley during your journey. Overall the walk is a 6.8 mile walk which can be completed within 2 or 3 hours.

The Riverside Café lies by the River Esk in Ruswarp. This is the place to have a bite to eat before setting out on the trial. Or the place for a well-earned rest by the waters after a long walk.

The Surrounding Area

This path is suitable for all, ideal for families, pets and casual walkers. Ruswarp is a hotspot for hiking; perhaps you would prefer the Esk Valley Walk for a shorter walk. The Cinder Track is another popular walking route passing through the area, which can be followed all the way to Scarborough.

For a different way of exploring the Esk, why not hire a boat at Ruswarp Pleasure Boats? Enjoy a peaceful row down the River Esk and make it up and down the river at a leisurely pace. Another way of exploring North Yorkshire is via the steam railway for unparalleled countryside views.
