Green rolling hills in the countryside with blue skies

Found on the edge of Middlesbrough, Gribdale Gate car park provides a great starting point for a network of paths and trails. 

Follow the long-distance Cleveland Way footpath and adventure into Coate Moor, a forest haven just waiting to be explored. If you want to venture further afield, the trail runs up to the historic Captain Cook's monument. The steep climbs are definitely worth it for the unparalleled views across the Cleveland Hills!

Green rolling hills in the countryside with blue skies

Nestled halfway up the slopes of the Cleveland Hills, Clay Bank is a great base for walkers, hikers and view seekers alike.

Clay Bank offers you easy access to the Cleveland Way, Yorkshire's famous 109 mile long trail that stretches from the dramatic coastline to the beautiful heather moorland. 

Don't miss out on the panoramic views that stretch to Kildale, Roseberry Topping, Teesside.

Coatham wood, found near Stockton, is a newly planted community woodland, with the first trees planted in 1999.

The mosaic of broadleaved and conifer trees, as well as ponds and meadows makes Coatham a great habitat for all kinds of wildlife. Look out for newts and dragonflies around the ponds, or you may spot a deer grazing in one of the open areas. All 5 native species of owl have been spotted around the woodland.
