Filey is at the eastern end of the Cleveland Way, a long-distance footpath; it follows the Yorkshire Coast to Saltburn and then crosses the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the stunning village of Helmsley. The Cleveland Way was only the second National Trail and opened in 1969.

Filey is also the northern end of the Yorkshire Wolds Way. The 79 mile trial passes through the chalk hills of the Yorkshire Wolds.  You can visit the deserted medieval village of Wharram Percy or while away hours in tranquil villages. The trail ends on the banks of the mighty Humber River at Hessle, in the shadow of the iconic Humber Bridge.
