The trail is a circular trail of 7km (4.3 miles) and is a absolutely beautiful walk – it is quite a strenuous trail though and there are a LOT of steps along the way so isn’t suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Dogs can be taken on the trail and we saw loads of dogs having a fantastic time! (They need to be on a lead when crossing farmland and near livestock though)

Pick up a leaflet in the information centre. This gives detailed safety precautions that need to be taken when walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail.

Consult the website The Ingleton Waterfalls Trail  for a map, downloadable copy of the leaflet and more information!

About half way around at Beezley Farm there is a refreshment centre where you can get a drink and a snack as well as access toilet facilities.

The walk to the top is stunning – pass Pecca Falls and Hollybush Spout on the way!

Nearly there! Thornton Force

Reaching the top! Raven Ray Bridge to Twistleton Lane

And a break at Beezley Farm for refreshments (and the loo!!) and then a picnic at Beezley Falls

On the way back down to Ingleton pass Rival Falls, Baxengyhll Gorge and finally the Snow Falls!

Interested in visiting some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful cities? My travel guides to York and Whitby are must-reads.

I also recommend visiting two UK UNESCO World Heritage Sites when you are in Yorkshire. The Victorian model village of Saltaire is fascinating as is Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Park. Both make excellent day trips!

And lastly if you are in Yorkshire and are a fan of Harry Potter why don’t you check out the North Yorkshire Moors Railway steam train to Hogwarts!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day and as we had taken a picnic we stopped off halfway to rest and enjoy the views. As you can see from the photographs there are a number of stunning waterfalls to enjoy along the route and the scenery was simply beautiful!
