Walking the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. Having spent the night in Ingleton the next day we headed for the circular route.
I filmed the day as part of my day in the life series below:
The day before we had walked up Ingleborough which is one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales. We then spent the night in Ingleton so we could walk the waterfall trail the next day. Click here to read about the day.

We left our car parked in Ingleton village, however, there is a car park at the trail entrance. Each individual has to pay at the ticket office to enter the walk.
Currently, it’s a one-way walk and so if you set off you must finish the trail, which is 4.3 miles or 7km. The walk took us around 2.5 hours but you can allow up to 4 depending on stops and your speed.
The Ingleton Waterfalls Trail was a little bit more challenging than I expected although that could have been because my legs were hurting from Ingleborough the day before! I would recommend some good footwear like walking boots.
It’s uphill for the first half of the walk as you see some of the waterfalls. It was quite busy the day we did the walk with some people also cooling off in the water when the sun came out.
It’s nice to take some photos along the way of the different waterfalls. You then walk through fields and begin the walk downhill with more waterfalls to view.
It’s a really pleasant walk and I’m glad we did it. I would recommend not visiting on weekends if you can because some of the waterfalls were busy.
At the end of the walk, you arrive in Ingleton village where you can take a look around and stop in one of the cafes before heading back to your car.
