The Yorkshire Wolds are formed by a series of low calcareous hills, from the Humber to the coast of North England. The path starts at the bank of the Humber Estuary and ends in Filey. There, at the cliffs on the east coast, you hit on the trail end of the Cleveland Way. So, if you have time and energy left, after 6 days of hiking the yorkshire Wolds Way, continue along the beautiful coastline north.
The hills through which this National Trail runs, rarely exceed 200 meter in height. The valleys are deeply cut, steep and therefore in use as pasture for sheep. The higher grounds are fertile but stony. The land is divided in large pieces where wheat, barley and oilseed rape are grown. In wintertime the country lies fallow.
This path is not as crowded as other National Trails. Overnight accommodation is available, but sparingly, and a good preparation is necessary.
