Any thoughts on walking the Cleveland Way from Filey to Helmsley? I know that officially it goes the other way. Is the coastal part tougher for instance than the moorland and therefore is it better to go the designated way?
Thanks in advance for any input.

I will do the route the traditional way from Helmsley to Filey. I prefer to walk up hill towards the coast and down hill towards Filey...because every one knows that if you walk towards the north its up hill and if you walk towards the south it's down hill.

Hi Hengirl,
i think if you walk the reverse way on the C.W.will be meeting any foul weather from Saltburn to Osmotherley, it may be behind you from Sutton Bank to Helmsley,
maybe swings and roudabouts, but then again you may relish the challenge
all the best for your walk

I wouldn't say it's any tougher walking the other way. I actually love the moors and it might be nice to walk the other way and save the moors until later. I just never thought of doing it that way! There's a thought for another jaunt!

Thanks all. So far no real reasons for not going the other way. I think ending on the moors sounds really nice as well. It's usually a bit of a shock coming back to civilisation after a good walk so a quieter ending sounds good.

Nothing wrong in going Either way, Helmsley would also be a much nicer finishing point.
