A popular tourist attraction, Aira Force is a great waterfall. The Aira Beck descends various falls and deep rocky troughs before reaching the main fall, Aira Force.
The Aira Force site is managed by the National Trust and a sizeable carpark is available together with a well-kept trail up to the waterfalls through the surrounding woodland. Aira Force itself has paths to the splash pool below the fall where there is a concrete viewing platform that is a magnet for photographers; though you can be drenched with spray from the fall on blustery days. There is also a track around and up to the top of the waterfall, where a small, arched bridge crosses the beck and the waterfall can be viewed from above. The upper falls and rock gorges are very interesting and viewing is done from above as the track is supported by wooden platforms.
A relatively easy visit from the car park but, Aira Force is incredibly popular and can be quite busy in season.
