Always enjoy doing this walk. First walked the trails aged 16 and now, at 46 I do find it a little harder! Such varied landscapes, beautiful waterfalls, no matter how many people are walking the falls you can still find a bit of peace, your own private bit on heaven on this walk. There is no part I like the... More

Had wrapped up appropriately since snow had been forecasted. We parked at the trails car park and set off. The paths are rocky and slippy in parts but the waterfalls were spectacular and provided many photo opportunities. The snow started just as we had to cross over the hills but the cafe and toilets at falls park provided a welcome... More

The best time to do this walk is after a good rainfall, then the falls are stunning. On the whole it can be a strenuous walk having a lot of steps so you need good footwear and plenty of water to drink. Its around 41/2 miles but your map my walk might tell you different. At the weekend it is... More

Ingleton is well known for its waterfalls but tourists tend to shy away during inclement weather. What a shame! The best time to view the waterfalls is when they are at their wildest and best, during or just following heavy rain. The walk is safe if you stay on the paths and you are wearing the right footwear, strong walking... More

Easy to find. Lovely views with plenty of photo opportunities. Dog walkers seem plentiful however most dogs off leads but well behaved but if fear of dogs should note. Pathways muddy and not suitable for limited health abilities or poor footwear. Take water on hot days as it is a long walk.

Found this online whilst looking for somewhere to go walking for the day, instead of usually planning my routes etc. This did cost money ( I'm used to walking freely ) However this trail is excellent, well kept and worth the money. Everything is easily sign posted. A cafe in the middle of the walk offers cheap refreshments and a... More

A charge to follow this lovely walk almost deterred me, but as we made our way round we could see how much maintenance is required and transporting materials for steps and paths must take a lot of work. It had LOTS of steps, some steep, and paths coild be slippery so decent footwear recommended. 2 different rivers and 6 (?)... More

This is a scenic walk along the river with some notable waterfalls. The path is well looked after, largely a gentle climb, but there are steps in places. 4 stars only because of the cost.

Lucky to have a beautiful early spring like day, we began the ascent. It is challenging but with well maintained paths, steps and bridges it is do-able and worth doing for the views, the sites and the waterfalls. The teas served, in real mugs, at the first hut almost half way up were a welcome delight. Worth every penny.

Fantastic trail with great natural waterfalls, but what a shame at £6 per adult. I understand the trail is managed and has to be maintained but I just feel that the fee is a little steep. Other than that we had no problems whatsoever! The staff we encountered were friendly and the toilet facilities were immaculate. The walk itself is... More
