Malham Tarn

This is a short and fairly level introductory cycle route which goes around the spectacular Malham Tarn. It is half on good stone tracks with the other half following very quiet tarmac roads. There is also the option to try out your mountain biking skills by adding in a section across the grassy limestone terrain.

Route Info

This is a great route to start out on taking in a circuit of the highest lake in England – Malham Tarn which is managed by the National Trust. The route follows gravel tracks, grassy sections and a quiet road to complete the circuit. On route there are great wildlife spotting opportunities, a bird hide and nature trail. There is a toilet at the Orchid House on route but other facilities are in Malham village before you reach the start.
