Walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail in Yorkshire England

Walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail in Yorkshire England

If walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is something you are planning to do then read on for all you need to know about this great hike in the Yorkshire countryside.


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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day and as we had taken a picnic we stopped off half way 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!

    It sounds like a walk worth experiencing. I’m a big fan of High Force in County Durham, which looks wonderful in the springtime when it’s in full flow.

      We have yet to walk High Force but we will add it to our to do list! The Ingleton Waterfalls trail is spectacular and is a walk well worth experiencing. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

    7KM is a good solid hike, especially with some of the stairs in your pics. I’m glad you made the stop there, it really looks stunning.

      It was a good hike – and stopping for a picnic was lovely with the views etc

    Goodness me, what a beautiful trail, I bet you are glad you had your walking boots with you so you didn’t miss this one! It’s so lush and green and I love the old stone walling and waterfalls! It’s good dog’s are allowed, I know a few people who would appreciate that 😀 Thanks for sharing a new walking trail, pinned for our next trip to the Yorkshire Dales #feetdotravel

      I know it was so great we just happened to stop off in the right spot – we loved it! 🙂

    The greens! The view! So amazing! We love trails. The money tree is an interesting concept. Bookmarked for the future.

      It is a lovely trail! And the money tree was quite something!

  6. April 26, 2017 / 8:18 pm

    Wow! What gorgeous landscape! I would love to spend the day here, just walking around, eating a snack at the farm, and enjoying the waterfalls. The money tree is something I haven’t seen before.

    I miss home so much after reading this! Yorkshire has the best cafes, I would order a bacon sandwich from the menu pictured, on a bap no doubt! Isn’t it beautiful with the greenery and dry stone walls, right now there will be lambs jumping about too. The clean air, I wish I could breath some in! I have never heard of the money tree, when I’m back in town I’ll check it out!

    • April 28, 2017 / 11:34 am

      It is a beautiful place and we loved the hike. Will buy a bacon sandwich next time we do the walk in your honour and post a pic to you!Definitely go and check out the tree when you are back in Yorkshire!

    That money tree is fricking crazy! What a bizarre sight. Those are some beautiful waterfalls and those gorges are not something I usually associate with england so this has been quite eye-opening. The quaint country lanes on the other hand are exactly what I picture. Definitely tempting me to visit Northern England. #feetdotravel

      I know it is pretty amazing! The hike is great and it is so beautiful I highly recommend it!
