A circular walk from Malham in the Yorkshire Dales. The walk initially passes by the picturesque Janet's Foss before reaching Gordale Scar and heading on to Malham Tarn.  

Gordale Scar is a very small scramble up to Malham Tarn.

Really interesting walk with some great geology to look at with Malham Cove formed over 12,000 years ago.  We will be climbing up Gordale Scar unless too wet to visit the Cove via that route.

Janet's Foss is a small waterfall and pool; folk tale references to a fairy queen who inhabited a cave near the rear of the fall.

You'll need good boots as the terrain especially around this area of Yorkshire is very rocky and in the wet could be slippy.
