Janet's Foss is such a beautiful place. Somewhere I fell in love with the first time I visited, at age 14, on a school field trip, and somewhere that I have come back to again and again.
I would suggest to get the most out of a walk around Janet's Foss, to take the bottom route, where you walk through the forest and arrive at the bottom of the fall, and then follow the trail onto Gordale Scar and the top of Malham cove, rather than the other way around.
Taking this route, you will follow the stream through the forest and you'll hear the fall before you see it. The first glimpse you get of Janet's Foss through the trees along the winding path is just magical (and a photographer's dream) It takes my breath away every time.
And for the brave hearted among you, on a quiet day there is nothing better than stripping off and having a quick dip in the foss !!
I have been here for romantic walks hand in hand. I have been with friends and all our kids, picnic packed, and then on for an action packed climb up the scar. There is a little cave across the foss and when the water's low enough (or if you don't mind getting wet ) you can get across to sit in the cave entrance and watch the world go by. And I have been countless times alone, when looking for solace, or just want the quiet beauty of nature to recharge my batteries and clear my mind. There is something for every one here.
The only thing I would say is that wheelchair and pushchair access would be very difficult.
I absolutely love this place and I'm sure you will too :-)
