Grade of Trail:
Length of trail:1.5 miles
Trail is currently open
Starting from the Bridestones carpark near Staindale Lake.
A variety of paths lead to and around the amazing natural sculptures of the Bridestones. Formed from alternating layers of hard and softer sandstone the rocks have been shaped by wind, rain and frost erosion. Some paths are reasonably smooth but there are gradients, steep in places and some paths have lots of stone steps.
What do other visitors say?

A very nice walk with great views. The steeper path to the right is a good climb and a nice walk across the moors.

I find them very unique and quiet compared to Brimham Rocks
