Walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail in Yorkshire England

One day in May 2016 on our way up to Northern England for a holiday we passed through the Yorkshire Dales and stopped off in Ingleford for a rest break. How glad we are that we chose that spot to stop! We had a look around the information centre and heard about the Ingleford Waterfalls Trail – there are leaflets available which detail the walk. Luckily we had our walking boots so we decided to give it a go. So if walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is something you want to do then read on!

Ingleford - walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

The Trail

The trail is a circular trail of 7km (4.3 miles) and is a absolutely beautiful walk – its a strenuous trail though and there are a LOT of steps along the way so isn’t suitable 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)

Waterfalls and finding the money tree!

The walk is stunning and you will even find the (?) a money tree on your way around!! Take some 2 pence coins if you want to add your own!

Swilla Glen

The money tree

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

 Rival Falls and Baxengyhll Gorge and finally the Snow Falls!

The final stretch and back to the village!

Logistics for walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

The leaflet we picked up in the information centre detailed safety precautions that need to be taken so I suggest you pick one up before you start the 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 (see photo above) where you can get a drink and a snack as well as access toilet facilities.

    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.

    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

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

    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!

      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
