Lovely waterfall with great access from the road. There are limited parking bays that are free to park. From them is about a 5 minute walk to the waterfall. The view of the falls is amazing. There is a suspension bridge over the river to the other side. – Google Review
Overall, it's safe to say Low Force Waterfall is an impressive series of falls on the River Tees, surrounded by pleasant woodland settings. If you cross the blue bridge you'll get a great view of the lower falls whilst listening to the sound of the rapids crashing over the rocks.
