    Waterfalls at Gordale Beck

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    A beautiful spot to visit, do be aware that unless you are a competent climber the you cannot make this a circular trail, as you will have to climb the waterfall, which I might add is brilliant fun.

    Hiking Highlight

    One of the smaller Lake District waterfalls, Skelwith Force is also one of the easiest to reach. However, it remains largely unknown to most visitors and is therefore lightly visited. As such, you can often enjoy it in relative solitude.
