Things to do at Ingleton Waterfalls Trail review

The Ingleton Waterfalls trail is a walk that follows a well-defined footpath which runs as close to the edge of the two rivers as possible. Thus providing spectacular views of the waterfalls. The trail beings and ends in the village of Ingleton in North Yorkshire.

The path includes a large number of steps making it unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. The wearing of walking boots or strong shoes is advised. The route is a 4.3-mile circular walk that takes around 2 to 4 hours to complete. Highlights include the famous Thornton Force which is regarded as one of the finest waterfalls in Yorkshire.

Once you leave the car park the walk takes you through beautiful woodland before climbing past the collection of waterfalls. The area has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest by Natural England.

Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
