Trail: Settle Tops (0)
Contributor: markroberts Activity Type: Trail Running Difficulty: Average Distance: 9.743 mi (15.68 km)
Description: Do this route in late October/early November and given the right conditions prepare to be amazed by the leaping salmon making their way upstream to spawn as they negotiate Stainforth Foss. It's a short window of opportunity to see the salmon flinging themselves up the gushing torrent of this iconic Yorkshire Dales waterfall but well worth the effort to witness one of nature's great occasions. But if you do miss the fish, it's still a beautiful route guaranteed to put a smile on a trail runner's face at any time of year. The run makes its way from Falcon Manor in Settle up the tops along the limestone skyline backdrop to this pretty market town, past Victoria Cave, visits another cascade, Catrigg Foss, then drops to Little Stainforth. Run over the ancient packhorse bridge then left onto the path to the waterfall. Pause for a breath and a bit of salmon spotting before continuing on the riverside path to take you back to Settle alongside the Ribble.
