This is a lovely walk along a section of the river Tees and back, taking in both High and Low Force waterfalls on the way. If you take the same path back the total route is approx 6km.
Start at Bowlees Visitor Centre, where parking is a £2 donation and there is a cafe and toilet facilities available. Go down a small country road towards the public footpath which leads through a sheep field and down to a bridge over the Tees.
The path runs alongside the river, giving lots of nice views of Low Force and the surrounding countryside on the way. The walk is mainly flat however there are some rocky patches and towards High Force itself some quite steep steps up to the road. At this point follow the signs to High Force, there is a charge of £1.50 per adult (concessions £1) payable at the gatehouse. The path is enclosed and leads you to the bottom of the waterfall where you can take in the view before heading back the way you came.
