Scaleber Force Waterfall | Hidden Waterfall in Yorkshire, England

Updated: Jan 2

Scaleber Force Waterfall is a fantastic little gem which is also perfect for a bit of wild swimming! Even during the dry summer days visitors can enjoy an impressive set of falls. The pathway down to the bottom of the waterfalls can be a bit tricky for some so we recommend wearing some shoes with a good grip on them, as well as good balance and strong legs!

Scaleber Force is a fantastic little hidden gem located only a stone throw away from the road. It's isn't that much of a walk from the main road however we recommend wearing appropriate footwear for those adventurous explorers wanting to get to the bottom of the waterfall.


If you go along the road to the bridge and take the second gate, you'll be at the top of the waterfall (bare in mind there is no way down from here!).

Lovely waterfall, very close to the road side, can be seen from the top, be careful getting down to the bottom but its worth it, the view of the waterfall is stunning! – Google Review

There is a nice little bench which overlooks the falls, however if it's a dry day and you have the right shoes, we recommend scaling down and getting a closer look at Scaleber Force! It's such a tranquil place and once down you can get some amazing views of the falls.
