About this event

Explore the incredible Malham Cove and Goredale Scar with Get Out, Get Active.

Malham Cove is a huge curving amphitheatre shaped cliff formation of limestone rock. On the top of the cove is a large area of deeply eroded limestone pavement, of a strange pattern rarely seen in England. Gordale Scar is a limestone ravine 1 mile northeast of Malham. It contains two waterfalls and has overhanging limestone cliffs over 100 metres high.

You'll need to bring some good outdoor walking shoes or strong trainers, plus a layer of waterproof clothing. The walking will be split into different level of distances up to 8km over a 2 hour period stopping regularly to appreciate the views and points of interest. 

We will finish the trip off with a pub or cafe visit in Malham for some traditional Yorkshire refreshments so we suggest bringing some spending money for a tasty meal, snack or hot drink before departing back for Leeds. Alternately you may want to bring a packed lunch and drink of your own.
