The Scarborough North Bay Treasure Trail starts at:

Burniston Road
North Yorkshire
YO12 6PG

Please Note:

The Trail is not marked as friendly for wheelchairs due to steep, windy paths around the bay area. However, those with light pushchairs should find the route manageable.

Notice: Please check on tide times before setting out, as parts of the Trail may be inaccessible in very high seas.

This Trail starts at Peasholm Station on the North Bay Railway, near Peasholm Park. It winds its way south along the cliff top paths towards the castle before returning north along the seafront to finish near Scalby Mills Station.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that dogs will need to be kept on leads, including in the gardens, and are not allowed on the northern half of the beach during summer months.

There are lot of car parks in Scarborough within easy walking distance from the start. However, during the summer and peak holiday periods, parking spaces can be hard to find so the Park & Ride is often a better option to save driving around searching for an empty spot. 

There are some fantastic events in Scarborough’s calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful town. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Scarborough Visitor Information.

There are public conveniences near the start of the Trail and along the sea front. The Trail also passes a children's playground. Snacks and refreshments are available at various points along the route. The parks and beach make great picnic spots if the weather is nice!

Why not make a day of it by visiting Peasholm Park or the Sealife Sanctuary along the way? You could even challenge yourself to another Trail adventure to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing town!
