Goitstock Waterfall Walk

Goitstock Waterfall is an exciting visit and an underappreciated location in the West Yorkshire countryside. It is close to Bingley and often praised as a hidden gem.

A two mile stroll through the Goitstock Woods will lead you along the Harden Beck to the spectacular waterfall.

Start at The Malt pub in Harden and walk away from Bingley towards Cullingworth. For the best route, follow the signs for the Goitstock & Senior Way. Along the route, you will pass three mills: Hallas Bridge, Harden Bridge and Goit Stock.

The terrain of the walk is relatively level. While it is rainy, the flat dirt paths may be difficult to navigate so it is best to wear your walking boots.

The walk is suitable for children and they will be in awe of the waterfall. However, be especially careful around the beck as the currents are dangerous.

The walk is circular and you will return to the Malt pub which is dog friendly and the perfect place to enjoy a post walk refreshment.
