About this spot
The path up the beck is actually one of the routes up to Buckden Pike, the largest hill in the area, but it's a challenging route with a number of scrambles up near-vertical cliffs if you're wanting to make it all the way up. Instead, just enjoy the more gentle terrain towards the bottom and only go up as far as you feel comfortable. There is a good path for most of the way, and the waterfalls extend both up and downstream from where you join it.
One of the highlights of this stream is that it's often crystal clear water, having been filtered by the limestone higher up, rather than the peat staining usually found in the dales.
