What a beautiful and breathtaking walk. There is plenty to see and it's an adventurous walk for children and adults alike. Most definitely somewhere I will be visiting again.

Not too far from the centre of Malham this is a delightful walk - look out for the little bee houses on your way!

Mostly flat towards Janet’s Foss. Flat path which becomes hilly and rocky underfoot. Lovely walk with beautiful waterfall at the end! Stunningly beautiful.

A must do while at Malham Well sign posted from the road with well kept paths. Water is really clear and the waterfall looks impressive.

No sorry it's quite difficult to get to as you have climb over some rocks. If you go across the road and follow the path whic I think would take a wheelchair, you will not be disappointed
