The idea of this route came from a fantastic site Walking Englishman, which resumes in its name one of the most beloved activities of our temporary compatriots. A great map of the trail is also available.
So, what will we get during this day of walking? Janet’s Foss waterfall, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and limestone scar at Malham Cove filmed in the last movie about Harry Potter. The walk is generally flat except for a short climb in Gordale Scar, which is not difficult at all, but requires a bit of courage for unexperienced hikers.
Make a wish!
During this walk, we had to remind ourselves constantly that we were still in England, and not in the Pyrenean Mountains somewhere in France or Spain. Breathtaking sceneries, peaceful countryside and total disbelief that British Isles are supposed to be overpopulated.
In one word – another way Yorkshire surprised us.
