Trollers Gill is a short, dramatic offshoot of Wharfedale. Towards the dale head, the valley splits into two and most people take the easier, left-hand fork up to the top. What they're missing is the dramatic gully of Trollers Gill's other fork. We take the easy way up, but cross to the top of the other fork to return to Trollers Gill proper. The route down is quite difficult, consisting of a rocky dry streambed, but the reward is the narrow ravine through which it snakes.

Why not combine this walk with a visit to Parcevall Hall's fine gardens and Tea Shop?

Dog owners, please note the presence of a couple of dog-unfriendly stiles, and also the rock-hopping section may be a bit trying.

A perfect little walk for an afternoon. The geology of the gully is amazing. The river diverts underground to leave the lovely dry streambed. No problems with directions, a very easy hill scramble but would recommend a dry day and walking poles. Very rewarding and a great place for rock climbing. 10/10. Well done!
