High Force in AutumnWith a drop of 21 metres your senses are filled with the sights and sounds of the thundering water crashing into the plunge pool below. 

High Force is an essential trip for all visitors to Teesdale.  With an ample parking area the waterfall can be accessed by a gentle woodland walk, for which a small charge applies.  The path is suitable for families with pushchairs and wheelchair users alike.  The magnificent sight of the falls can be enjoyed from the base of the falls at the bottom of a series of steps.  The top of these steps is the furthest access points for those with limited mobility.  

Situated at the car park and entrance point to High Force there is a gift shop and a small visitor centre.  

The nearby Bowlees visitor centre, managed by the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a local produce cafe serving lunches and snacks .  The centre contains a wealth of local information including walking routes to the falls.  Enjoy a full day experiencing the majesty of the River Tees by taking a walking route that includes both Low Force and High Force, crossing the river over the delightful Wynch Bridge, the ancient footbridge just below Low Force.
