Scaleber Force is located in a deep wooded gorge near Settle and is known as one of the most attractive and atmospheric waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales. The waterfall is fairly easy to visit with room to park several cars on the roadside near the junction of High Hill Lane and Stockdale Lane. From there it is a few minutes walk up the road to take a path on the right hand side, this leads to the top of Scaleber Woods and a glimpse of the beautiful waterfall from above.
