Ingleton is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and famed for its fantastic landscapes both above and below ground. Undoubtedly, one of the major natural assets to this landscape is the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, a 4 mile trail with distinctive geological features and associated plant life. An absolute must if visiting the area.
The trail follows a well-defined footpath which runs as close to the edge of the two rivers as possible to provide spectacular views of the waterfalls. The path includes a large number of steps which means that it is unsuitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. We would advise wearing walking boots or strong shoes.
The trail boasts 8 spectacular waterfalls amid stunning scenery and ancient woodlands. There is even the odd surprise along the way!
Within Swilla Glen lies the famous money tree, it is seen as good luck to add a coin to it.
There is charge to walk the Trail with proceeds going towards paying for the upkeep of the paths and ancient woodlands. It also includes the cost of parking.
The Trail is open daily from 9am and last entry (for safety in darkness) is:
November, December, January, February – 2.30pm,
March, Sept, Oct – 4pm,
April, May, June, July, August – 7pm.
