Walking Log ... Walks including "Gordale Scar"

Gordale Scar
Gordale scar is a fantastic limestone gorge approximately 1 mile from the village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales. It was formed over the last few million years by water from melting glaciers. The gorge boasts two waterfalls and 100 metre high limestone cliffs.

The stream than runs through the gorge is Gordale Beck, which then flows on to Janet's Foss before joining with Malham Beck to form the River Aire. A right of way follows the stream up through the scar, but some mild scrambling is required to follow it up.

Always a popular location, there is even a camp site at the mouth of the gorge. Well worth a visit, especially in conjunction with Janet's Foss and Malham Cove.
