Discover a frankly amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations to explore and study, which makes a great day out for inquisitive families as well as climbers and shutterbugs after magnificent views over Nidderdale: all will be appeased!
Kids can let their imaginations run wild as the whole family explores the intriguing labyrinth of paths through this unique landscape.
Keep an eye out for some fantastically shaped rocks that are great fun for the kids to try and spot. If you can (you can!) remember some in advance so that they know what to look for, such as: the Dancing Bear, The Eagle and The Gorilla! Can you find any lookalikes of your own?
Plus you can have a family ramble over scented heather moorland, through beautiful woodland and take in the soothing views over Nidderdale and beyond with a great many way marked country walks and trails crossing through this area.
The family hound is welcome but strictly on leads April to June to protect the ground nesting birds! It's also not a good idea to take them too close to the Bug Hotel: a mini beasts breeding ground thrumming with insects, rebuilding some declining local species. A great point at which to add some education to the day!
Some toilet facilities available but you'll have to ask where, we don't know! Knowing the National Trust though they'll be centrally placed and nice and clean - generally!
