Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

The Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is a circular trail that begins and ends in the village of Ingleton. It is about 8 km long and leads along a well-marked path that runs over numerous bridges and as close to the edge of two rivers as possible to provide views of the falls. The path includes a large number of stairs and landings, which makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs or prams. It is also recommended to wear solid and comfortable footwear.

Due to plants and animals occurring here, as well as geological structures, the English Nature institution included the Twiss and Doe rivers, located on the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, to places of special scientific importance (SSSI).

The history of the trail goes back to the 19th century. After many articles in the Lancaster Guardian and other newspapers about Ingleton and the surrounding area, public interest led to the creation of the trail. Paths were marked out and the trail was officially opened on Good Friday, April 11, 1885.
