A short day out in limestone country with a superabundance of waterfalls is the essence of this walk. A lot of people have been doing the round for over a hundred years and the paths have improved even in my lifetime. Most of these falls must have been nearly inaccessible until the Ingleton Scenery Co. (God obviously on their side) took it over. It is well worth the entry fee though and to compensate for the crowds on the waterfall walk, I have added a quieter section along Kingsdale for the more discerning Walkingworld subscriber.

29/12/15 We did this walk yesterday just before Storm Frank hit! With all the recent rain the waterfalls were stunning. We had no problems navigating but the path along Kingsdale, once it leaves the road,which rejoins the falls walk is extremely wet and we wouldn't have done this had we realised. The sun shone for us today.

We did this walk on 10/10/12 an excellent walk even if the path between waymarks 10 to 14 is quite difficult to follow at times. We did discover that instead of paying at the pay and display carpark and starting the walk from the information centre you can park at the entrance of the waterfalls trail and the parking fee is included in your entrance fee.

Thanks for this. Did the walk on 16/101/11 - worth noting since it had rained for the past week. Waterfalls were wonderful but a bizarre moment up Kingsdale where the beck was completely dry until ----- it was like the tide coming in - 10 minutes later and it was a beck again !!! Directions were fine. Some of the world's friendliest collies at the farm, thought they were going to join us for the last part of the walk!

Excellent walk, but was very busy on a sunny Easter Sunday!

The entrance fee on Easter Day 2007 was £4 per adult. Pricey, but well worth it for the stunning scenery. I can thoroughly recommend the extension in Kingsdale.
