Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:
At High Force, the River Tees plunges 21m (70ft) over a near vertical cliff edge in two stages. After heavy rainfall the River Tees will also flow over the dry right-hand side channel creating two falls. The falls have been known to freeze in harsh winters , creating spectacular ice formations.
