START/PARKING Public car park at the junction of Roseberry Lane, Newton-under-Roseberry on the A173 between Guisborough and Great Ayton. OS Map Grid Reference NZ571128
From the car park turn right onto Roseberry Lane. Follow the lane to Newton Wood and up the stepped path before bearing left to the edge of the trees. To reach the summit turn sharp right along the steep distinct stone path to the summit of Roseberry Topping.
The descent is down the east face to the col but only to rise again past Little Roseberry onto Newton Moor.
After passing through a wooden gate, bear left over the moor to enter Hutton Cowcross Woods by a stile to the left of the gate. Continue straight ahead along Royston Bank avoiding the fallen trees (use trails in the woods either side of the path). Where the forest track makes a hairpin bend to the right, keep ahead along a narrow path leading to Hanging Stone.
After enjoying the stunning views of Guisborough, Highcliff Nab and Eston Moor, maintain a downhill course to reach another forest track. Turn right for approximately 20 metres, then left, eventually to reach a rough grass track. Turn left. At the main junction bear left again.
Keep ahead as this track starts to climb, follow a grass track to a wooden gate to finally reach a larger gate opening onto Roseberry Common. Follow the right-hand track. At the following two forks bear right to descend round the base of Roseberry Topping and re-enter Roseberry Lane back to the car park.
