Very hard and very long. A challenge alright esp for a novice. Downhills are crazy hard if you lack the thigh muscle to cope. Research relevant preparation as these mountains can hurt!!

brilliant hike but train as much as possible and make sure boots fit properly and are worn in. Will make the day much more enjoyable.

Did this as a training walk for another route I'm doing in a few weeks and thought it would be a good one. I was right! The trail is marked as hard and believable me, it's a tough hike. The two areas to watch out for are the decent from Whernside and the climb on Ingleborough. the rest is moderate to hard, but with a steady pace it's achievable. The views were amazing though, and to see Ingleborough looming in the distance creates a challenge and motivation to keep going. Overall, a great hike and one to recommend.

touth little hike . did it today in aid of bhf. paths are loose and rocky. not one for new hikers. will do it again..

Did this hike with my partner (we both recently got into hiking) this afternoon and managed to finish it within 2hours. The trail is primarily comprised of several flights of steps that lead you from one waterfall to the next. I would definitely recommend this walk to anyone wanting to have a good time whilst enjoying a series of scenic landscapes. There are also a number of spots in which you could have a picnic or stop to enjoy a cold ice-cream (from the ice-cream van). There is a £7.00pp entrance fee which is quite expensive especially for larger families.

Start of this trail is up up up high & steep! Amazing views from top. Plover field is like swamp land in most places followed by a steep rocky descent!! Rest of walk level look out for the huge waterfall.

love this walk just not the cows and bull that decided to give chase.

A stunning walk with wonderful views and industrial archaeology at every turn. Personally, if I did this again I would turn around before the second ford gate waypoint and retrace my steps. The slog uphill and the descent to the end were an anticlimax compared to the first half of the walk.

Walked this yesterday and despite the miserable weather it did not deflect from the beauty of this place. An amazing walk with beautiful waterfalls. There are a lot of steps throughout the walk and can be slippy when wet. Perfect walk with the dog too. My pooch loved it. It’s £7 per adult for entry and the walk is approx 2-2.5 hours long. There are cafe facilities half way round and W/C but the cafe only accepts cash.

Lovely walk with some great views. I'd definitely recommend this walk but I think it's a bit much charging £7 per person. other than that, it's a good day out.

Great walk with a bit of everything. Woods, water, hills. Path well marked. Great for dogs too.

Quite a nice walk however lots and lots of litter. They charge £7 (if I remember correctly, per car). You don't need to pay, however, as you can get on the path at many other areas, which was a little annoying.

Straight forward walk with good views all around. my 7 yr old had no problems with the distance despite taking a longer loop around Hawes.

lovely walk, usually I'm rubbish with directions but this app is so easy to use..

Wet and windy day with low cloud around. Fantastic walk out from Malham along to Gordale Scar then back along to Malham Cove. Really slippery on the top in all the rain. Sun broke out as we sat and the views were amazing.
