Starting from the Ship Inn at Old Saltburn, we follow the Cleveland Way up the steps to the cliff top.

The rocky ledges of Saltburn Scar are below as we continue along the well-worn route past Huntcliff Nature Reserve.

An information panel gives details of the Roman signal station and, after passing through a wooden gate and stile, we walk beside a fence that runs alongside the railway line.
