From Commondale along paths and tracks. Lots of Grouse about. Went to HP and Tumuli.PeterD07/04/2017
With K. Very pleasant, good view.Ashley19/03/2017
From small parking area at end of road to North Ings farm using track to east of Commondale Moor out and to west back, cutting over North Ings Moor on return.SS19/02/2017
A fine circular sea-to-summit walk from Saltburn. Up the lovely Saltburn Gill, via Hagg farm to the much less scenic Asda roundabout, through the industrial estate (it gets better, honest), along the railway to pick up Cleveland street LDP. Via Priestcliff, Boosbeck, Jenny Frisk Rd (wrecked by trail bikes), and over Low Moor (nice) to the excellent tea wagon on the A171 (homemade cakes). Quakers causeway and then off piste to Hob on the Hill, then off piste via the earthwork to the track leading to the top. Back via the trig, and the Cleveland way to Saltburn. Nice views all the way back, except for Skelton (but the sunset made it look better, with god rays and everything). Skelton Beck and the railway viaduct are very good. A fine expedition, and it's easy to get to Saltburn by train. Objective dangers: heather burning, a plague of dog shit (no poop scoops round here) and serious altitude sickness.Gill12/01/2017
From Commondale Station by good paths. Lots of grousetrimarc211/01/2017

Solo. From the parking place west of Commondale at NZ656105 along rights of way NW until very close to summit. Took the variations more to the NE side where there were variations. Stood on rock at highest point and visited the two ancient cairns as well. On descent observed convoy of 17 4WD descending on nearby track. Only a very small muddy bit not far from start.pwbellarby24/09/2016

Solo run from Wayworth.amswanston23/08/2015
Track/path from west of Commondale.AndrewFinnimore15/06/2015
Car park at Great Ayton Station, Cliff Rigg, Roseberry Topping, Great Ayton Moor, Gisborough Moor, Easby Moor. Walk with lots of variety and good paths nearly all the way. Exception is at farm at Sleddale where confluence of rights of way suggests likely permissive passage through the farm, but not so. Was politely informed as we were leaving the farmyard by very friendly farmer in his 80's. The alternative would have been a diversion round the farm on access land with no path, so it depends how conscientious you are.ijpowell04/06/2015
With Jo, from Commondale: Gisborough Moor and Guisborough Moor trig. Weather; high cloud with sunny intervals, mild, good visibility.amblerbob04/04/2015

a short out n back from Wayworth in Commondale. easy enough and pleasant views which improved as the summit was reached. returned same way and then headed off to Urra Moorstig_nest14/05/2014
We enjoyed a circuit from the carpark west of Commondale. The return via the landrover track west of Commondale Moor takes you along an edge with great views over well kept grouse moors. The land owner hasn't come to terms with right to roam as signs are still in place proclaiming no right of way but don't be put off. We saw a chap with a hawk, but as we approached he disappeared and there was no sign of a landrover driving off. Up to no good no doubt!mindlessflogger05/09/2013
Meg and me very windy but a good break on the journey from Edinburgh homeRoland Brooks17/09/2012
