Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is a well-known circular trail beginning and ending in the village of Ingleton in the English county of North Yorkshire, now maintained by the Ingleton Scenery Company. It is claimed that the trail, some 8 kilometres (5 miles) long, and with a vertical rise of 169 m (554 feet) has some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in the north of England.  It is on private land and an entrance fee is charged.

Met up with my sister, brother-in-law and friends at the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail car park.

There is a snack bar and toilets near the car park entrance at the site. Along the trail there are a couple more places where you can grab a snack or two whilst you take in the views of the waterfalls and the surrounding area. Also half way along the trail there are also toilets available to customers.

Had to have an ice cream break as it was a lovely hot day, however remember to bring your pennies, cash only at this one. Thankfully one of us had hard cash. Thank you Mark 🙂
One of the beautiful waterfalls, Thornton Force – there is a small trail where you can get across to go under the waterfall

At Thornton Force, the main waterfall you can get underneath. Some kids enjoying the refreshing fall 🙂

As the trail is on private land, the paths are very clean, safe and clear. It was a leisurely day out and a beautiful place to catch up with family and friends.
