Signs currently asking people not to use the forestry track due to erosion. In this weather it's a muddy nightmare anyway, so heading along the top via the Cleveland Way is the best option at the moment.|

Contrary to what the guidebook says, Waterslide (HS 4b) is not cleaner and better than it looks, it is much dirtier and just as bad.
The optional traversing finish almost makes it worthwhile though.
