Egton High Moor (OC-150)

Whitby, United Kingdom

Loop - Hilly

The climb from Egton Bridge up onto Egton High Moor is the longest climb in the North Yorkshire Moors at over 7km in length. The good news is the steep section comes early and the reward for the long gradual drag to the summit is the stunning scenery in this isolated part of the moors. All the better for the purple heather when the ride was recorded. The ride climbs up onto the moors and then rather than continue to Rosedale and the dreaded Chimney, turns around for the exhilarating decent back to Egton bridge.
