If you want a circular walk that takes in every aspect of beautiful Yorkshire scenery, this is it. From Malham Village you follow a signed pathway as it meanders along the stream until you reach steps chiselled into the hillside. It's a steep climb - not for the faint hearted - up to the top of the cove, but the view of Malhamdale is stupendous. You can walk across the intriguing limestone pavement, which sits at the head of the cove. Here you can sit awhile and look out for Peregrine Falcons. Leaving the cove, you follow the signed footpath across the fields; there are cows and sheep and some of the fields, so dogs may have to be placed on leads. Keep going following the signs until you reach  Malham Tarn where dogs love to swim in the water. From here you you follow the valley reaching Gordale Beck running through Wedber Wood. This eventually leads to Janet's Fosse and then the pathway returns to Malham Village.

We've done this walk several times and it never fails to please. Depending on your walking pace, it's a day out so do take a picnic as it's quite a trek and sustenance is needed along the way.
