We walked and walked and walked!! It’s is up and down and with boys aged 4 and 8 it was tiring at times. The trail does allow for good spots to rest and the falls and views are spectacular!! A great walk!!

There isn't a direct footpath between Beezley Farm and White Scar Caves, the closest footpath takes you towards Ingleton Quarry, as shown on the Ordnance Survey mapping website.
