Malhamdale with kids, June 17

Walk details

  • Route Malham – Janet’s Foss – Gordale Scar – Malham Cove – Malham
  • Distance 6.9 miles
  • Duration 5 hours 10 mins
  • Getting there Train to Skipton and then 75 DalesBus
  • Weather Warm and sunny

Why this route?

  • We did this a few weeks ago, and thought the kids would enjoy it. Also, for most of the last month my choice has been walking or talking,  but not both, so I wanted something gentle to ease me back into the swing of things.

What did we learn?

  • Take towels when going out with the kids in summer so they can paddle.

Walk highlights

  • Hay-meadows the likes of which I have only dreamed of. A veritable sea of yellow.
  • The dry winter and spring made the far side of Janet’s Foss accessible, providing excellent opportunities for exploring caves.
  • Gordale Scar never ceases to be majestic.
