Things to Do Near Hipping Hall Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

This is a must see for visitors to this corner of the Yorkshire Dales. This stunning 4.3mile, 7km circular walk opened its doors to the paying public in 1885 set against a dramatic backdrop of ancient woodlands and cascading waterfalls.

The walk follows the River Twiss as it cascades through Swilla Glen, a deep cleft in the surrounding Limestone rock carved by the force of water flowing through it over millennia. Here you will find a woodland canopy of oak, hazel, ash and birch and the famous Money Tree… it’s good luck to hammer a coin into the tree, that’s if you can find space…

As you leave Swilla Glen you come to the first of five falls that make up Pecca Falls, here the rock is harder, made up of sandstone and slates, which means the river makes a series of dramatic drops into deep pools.

On leaving Pecca Falls you come onto the open moor where you will find Holly Bush Spout, as the river thunders through a narrow valley. A little further on you, will be greeted by the most famous of all the falls, Thorton Force, which was immortalised by artist J. M. W. Turner. This giant when in speight tumbles over a 14m cliff and must be seen to be believed…

After crossing the bridge over the River Twiss you will find yourself on Twisleton Lane, the ancient Roman Road linking the fort on the slopes of Ingleborough with the fort at Over Burrow. After leaving Beezley Farm you enter beautiful Oak woodland, where the Rive Doe makes its way down Beezley Falls to Triple Spout (three falls side by side). A little further on you will find Rival Falls and the infamous Black Hole, a dark and foreboding pool reputed to be over 80ft deep!

At Baxenghyll Gorge you are greeted by a cacophony of noise as the Doe crashes over the rocks, don’t forget to look back though as you wander back through Twisleton Glen… that way you won’t miss the beauty of Snow Falls.

From here on in it’s a gentle walk alongside the old limestone quarry workings before arriving in Ingleton and the end of the trail.
