Malham Cove & Malham Tarn
Join Get Out, Get Active (GOGA) for a friendly guided walk followed by some free time in Malham.
Malham Cove is a huge curving amphitheatre shaped cliff formation of limestone rock. It was formed by a waterfall carrying meltwater from glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age more than 12,000 years ago.
Goredale Scar is a limestone ravine. It contains two waterfalls and has overhanging limestone cliffs over 100 metres high.
Often known as the highest ‘lake’ in England, Malham Tarn is a haven for many native upland waterfowl. The tarn is at 377 metres (1,237 feet) above sea level and is the destination of our longer walk.
There will be two walking route options- a shorter route to Malham Cove and Goredale Scar for people who wish to spend more time in Malham and a longer return walk to Malham Tarn for those wishing to explore further.
