A view of the impressive falls at Aysgarth has been made possible because of a purpose-built footpath from the car park to the middle falls. Here there is a viewing platform for wheelchair users. The gate is wide and easy to open and there are benches along the way.
There is also a track through Freeholders’ Wood, which is stile free but it is unsurfaced and suitable only for a powered wheelchair. At the end of this track you turn around and retrace your steps.
This is a Miles without Stiles walk created by the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
What facilities are there?
There is a café in the visitor centre as well as disabled toilets (RADAR).
