    Most people walk from Malham village up to the cove using the road ways, there's an alternative route up passed the pub where you are higher up, I find this is Vetter for photos of the cove, also once your up the top of the cove ( after a break or 2 on the steps) don't miss out on the tarn/lake further up. It's only an extra 10 to 15min walk and worth a visit, especially during the summer months.

    Towards the end of the walk the right turn to back lane can look like a private dead end with a car park and cottage. Just walk through....

    A real gem of the Yorkshire Dales! Walk up to Malham Cove from Malham and continue on to Malham Tarn. It's a really great area to explore. I particularly love the limestone pavement.
