Malham trail to display Dales scenery
Bookmark and Share
Those interested in the scenery and geology of the Yorkshire Dales could don fleeces and enjoy a four-hour hike around the Malham area of the national park next month.

Starting at 11:15 BST on October 26th, the event will see volunteers from the national park authority imparting their knowledge of the various features of the area.

Among these is the steep gorge of Malham Cove, while the limestone scenery includes sinkholes, where streams disappear down steep holes into subterranean cave systems.

In the midst of this lies Malham Tarn, which exists due to the presence beneath it of a sheet of impermeable rock.

Fleeces and waterproof jackets may be increasingly useful during October's weather as the days get colder, wetter and shorter.

Those finding such clothing useful may be local schoolchildren who will be climbing Ingleborough with park officials next month.

Around 40 youngsters will be climbing the mountain - one of the three peaks - and having their lunch on the top.
