There is a car park an appropriate distance of 100 metres away which is reasonably priced.
We tried the previous evening to locate the falls and only found them by pure fluke earlier today when we pulled over directly next to the wooden sign next to the alleyway which led to the falls.
The alleyway is located immediately before the first house on the left and takes you to the wooden bridge where excellent photos can be taken of the river and falls directly below.
The river has good walks to the attractive village of Grassington and we saw several fly fishers too.
There is no doubting how pretty the area is but unless you are taking an activity, fishing or walking there is not too much too see here.
Very pretty area worthy of an hour or so.

Another lovely waterfall ! Just a short walk from the car park takes you to the river Wharfe. As you walk down the narrow bit of footpath, if you continue straight on you come across the weir at the Hydro electric power station with a sign on the info board saying 'Linton falls'. Its not that impressive to be honest and I have seen average reviews with photos of the weir to reflect this, however that is not the actual Falls. To see them you turn right on the narrow pathway at the start of your walk and it takes you to a wooden footbridge that spans the river, this is where the magic is ! The water tumbles over another wier type feature and then cascades through narrower rock cuts that the river has carved out over time before turning to calm once more. Standing on the bridge and watching this happening all around you is a great experience, so if you go make sure you find the falls and not the power station weir !

so beautiful to see and so is the little village.
You must walk behind the village to the church. Which is so picturesque - walk through the Church grounds to the stepping stones in the river - cross to the other side and walk back to the falls

Visited today (Sun 12th Feb) for the 1st time with my husband and son, parked in the Yorkshire Dales visitor centre car park for £5 all day. There's a path at the bottom of the car park leading between fields of sheep down to Linton falls, sloping gently down a narrow path. The falls are so picturesque, we stood on the wooden bridge for ages looking at the beautiful view & taking photos, the sound of rushing waters is so soothing, with the hills & sheep fields in the distance. We crossed the bridge to see the hydro electric plant briefly then crossed back to walk beside the river Wharfe to the big stone bridge, a short but pretty walk, then you turn right & walk up a sloping street that leads to the main street & square in Grassington, plenty of tourist shops, cafes & pubs & a little free folk museum. You can see the filming locations for the recent series of " All Creatures Great & Small " all round the market square, the Devonshire pub is the Drovers, the Stripey Badger is the greengrocers & the vets house, Skeldale House is the house to the right of the Stripey Badger ( they change it by putting columns on the doorway etc for filming apparently. ) We had a lovely walk round Grassington after & a meal, a lovely winter day out, well wrapped up. They give you a free map of the walk from the Tourist information centre at the car park, it's an easy walk if you can walk up uneven paths & hills.

Despite living in Yorkshire, I've never really made the most of Grassington's scenery but it is absolutely beautiful, and Linton Falls is one of its highlights. You can do a circular walk from the town down to the waterfall, then walk along the river. It is a nice spot to have a picnic along the river too.
Only thing to watch out for is it does get quite busy, and there is only a narrow path leading down to the waterfall, which isn't convenient in these troubled times - particularly when some folk seem to think the pandemic is over and make no attempt to keep their distance. So perhaps try time it right to avoid peak times.

We started our visit to Grassington with a walk from the National Park car park down to Linton Falls. This is via a concrete path from the far left of the car park (so possible without walking boots). You can’t help but spend time standing on the wooden bridge watching the water rush by underneath, across the bridge you can also walk to the hydro plant with info board about its restoration.
We then went back over the wooden bridge and walked to the left along the river bank which takes you to the village (we picked up a free map from the information centre in the car park).
Despite the car park being really busy (including several coaches) the countryside just seemed to absorb everyone and it didn’t feel over crowded.
We walked into the centre of the village and were very surprised with the large number of small independent shops and choices of places to eat (cafes, pubs and restaurants). We spent most of the day in the village and really enjoyed it.

Whilst staying in Grassington we walked the short distance from the car park down to see the falls in full flood. Very impressive and in quieter times would like to return to walk along the river bank as the area was very beautiful. Well worth the short walk down the hill, which is pathed all of the way to the Falls.

Very pleasant short walk from the National car park in Linton, down a narrow path (and back again!) which can get a little crowded, although everyone was very well mannered when we were there. A small bridge provides good spot for pictures up and dpwn stream. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and the 5 minute walk along the river to the falls was very pleasant. Especially good for dog walkers after a car journey to the Dales! We only had an hour to spare, and this fitted the bill perfectly.

It was not the best day to visit here as it was threatening heavy rain but not withstanding that the Falls were absolutely beautiful to visit. About 10 minute walk from the village via the public car park through beautiful countryside. The Falls were an amazing spectacle. Would have liked to have carried on the walk on the river bank but we may have got wet.
A great place to bring a picnic to
