History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Malham Cove is reached by a lovely, mostly level footpath from Malham village. A set of steps runs up the side of the Cove, allowing visitors with a bit of ambition and decent fitness to climb to the top for magnificent views over the surrounding Yorkshire Dales countryside.
In addition, Malham Cove is popular among birdwatchers, as there is a local population of peregrin falcons. The RSPB and Yorkshire Dales National Park operate a free falcon watching station at the base of the Scar. There are free telscopes available and wardens on hand to help you spot the falcons. The falcon station generally operates daily from early April until the end of August.
