Ingleton Waterfalls Trail,
|The last of the labelled falls, going clockwise,
on the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail,
although there are more. You look back to see Snow Falls.
Snow Falls is in or next to Twistleton Glen,
and its woodland sits on the west bank of the River
Doe. It is owned and managed by the Woodland Trust and is a site of
Scientific Interest. The rock step, into which the Glen is cut is formed
because of the different resistance to erosion of the rocks laying each side of
the Cavern Faults. The stepped outcrops have created cascades and
waterfalls, in particular Snow Falls.
The dominating tree species here is Oak,
because of the acidic slate as opposed to limestone on the River Twiss. The
flora is dominated by grasses, although you may see some wild garlic and typical
moorland/heathland species such as bracken and fern.
The only access to this woodland is via the
paths provided for the Waterfalls Trail, from where the final footbridge takes
you across the River Doe into another wide rocky dell, where again some stop to
take a picnic. Smaller waterfalls continue through this area and particularly
from the last ridge you get to see some up close.
This waterfall is one of a number located on
Ingleton Waterfalls Trail
is available from this trail which is open to the public (with charges), see
walks location guide for common details.
