Golitha Falls

A moderate riverside walk to the falls but to fully experience the breathtaking cascade a visit after rainfall is a must!

Walk through woodland to Golitha falls

There is a free car park (always helpful), with a toilet block (although it was locked up when we went). The walk through the woods along the river is stunning. It was a sunny day when we visited, so the light coming through the green leaves was amazing. Some paths are good, others are more tricky because of exposed tree roots. But the walk is so well worth just taking your time. The falls themselves are tiny, 3 little tumbles. But the darkness due to the foliage made it an ideal spot to experiment with my photography and capture a 'smooth water' image of the falls. So remember to bring your dSLR and tripod!

Golitha Falls near Siblyback Reservoir. Well worth a visit to this FREE attraction. However, as you venture towards the Falls the paths are rather tricky to follow as they are not very well marked. Breathtaking in more ways than one! If you have the agility of a mountain goat then you will be fine. The Falls are magnificent and worth the struggle to see them in all their majesty and wildness.
