The Scarborough South Cliff Treasure Trail starts at:

Saint Nicholas
North Yorkshire
YO11 2ET

Please Note:

The Trail is not marked as friendly for wheelchairs or pushchairs due to uneven ground, steep gravel paths and some steps. All terrain buggies may cope, but would not be recommended.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there are two Clues that are in an area where dogs are not permitted, so we would not advise bringing along your pup if you are doing the Trail alone.

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. 

The Trail finishes at the seafront – to get back up to the start point, you will need to walk uphill or take a stepped path, or use the cliff lift if it is running.

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 toilets available in town before the start of the Trail, and there are a myriad of cafes, restaurants, pubs and other eating establishments at the beginning and end of the Trail. The gardens along the route make fantastic picnic spots if the weather is nice!

Why not make a day of it by visiting the Rotunda Museum along the way, or head into Scarborough town to visit the castle? You could even challenge yourself to another Trail adventure to uncover more twisting tales about this amazing town!
