Distance: 5 miles

Ascent: 600 feet

The Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, opened in 1885, runs through privately owned land but is open throughout the year subject to an admission charge. It’s worth every penny. The trail is well managed and waymarked and it would be impossible to get lost and the scenery is stunning every step of the way

The walk starts in the village of Ingleton and follows the banks of the River Twist. There are various falls along the way, the most spectacular of these being Thornton Falls just before the highest point of the walk – a magical place

After a short section across typical dales limestone country, the trail joins the banks of the River Doe as it flows down into Ingleton. There are several more waterfalls to enjoy on this section

The weather varied during the walk – there was some sun, several heavy showers, and a couple of hailstorms – but the beauty of the scenery was constant throughout
