Brimham Rocks

These rocks make any challenging climb up the high side of the Nidderdale AONB worth it! Brimham Rocks are home to an array of unusual rocks, including the Smartie Tube and the Druid’s Writing Desk.

The Idol stone is possibly the most fascinating wonder in the collection. This rock formation comprises large, limestone slabs resting atop a small stone.

If you want to learn more about the stone formations, be sure to pick up a lanyard pack for the nearby National Trust welcome cabin. With this, you can partake in an intriguing geology walk!

Brimham Rocks Walk

The Brimham Rocks Walk is a circular trail, which starts at Brimham Rocks Car Park. The loop takes you past a range of sights, from Brimham Moor to Hare Heads.

A range of wildlife can be seen on the trek, too. You’ll be able to see adorable cattle grazing as well as a range of birds, including the meadow pipit.

Four-legged friends are always welcome at Brimham Rocks, so you can enjoy an invigorating hike together. Once you’ve finished the hike, be sure to take some pictures at the summit before admiring the panoramas of the Nidderdale’s moorland.

Afterwards, kick back and unwind with a picnic on one of the grassy patches surrounding these amazing landmarks. If you’re visiting with kids, why not venture to the nearby Brimham Rocks Adventure Farm for even more fun?

Be amazed by nature’s oddities at Brimham Rocks…
