Golitha Falls Walk

Walk Details

Cross the road to start along a broad track beside the river; there is an information board on the National Nature Reserve and two recommended walking routes.

For some distance the track is gravelled and very easy to navigate, with a few information points and the occasional seat along the way.

As the ground becomes rougher however, with abundant tree roots, there are little watercourses with bridges and slippery muddy patches. Stay as close to the river as reasonably possible.

You might want to return at this point. However, if you want to see more of the falls, head up the hillside to the right, and you’ll see a well-used (and somewhat muddy) sunken track in less than 50m. Bear left for up to approximately 200m.

Unless you want to find a loop path across the hillside, return by the same route.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".

This route was correct at time of writing. However, alterations can happen if development or boundary changes occur, and there is no guarantee of permanent access.

It is walkers’ own responsibility to be adequately prepared and equipped for the level of walk and the weather conditions and to assess the safety and accessibility of the walk.
