LOGISTICS FOR WALKING THE INGLETON WATERFALLS TRAIL
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!

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 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!
