Take a walk in ancient woodlands and landscaped glades to Aira Force Waterfall, a 20 m (65 ft) waterfall in the Lake District. Hammer in a coin to make a wish at the Wish Tree.

not too challenging, to go to the force you have the choice to go in a circular route, crossing a small stone bridge where you have fabulous views of the fall. you can choose to continue back to the car park the way you came, through beautiful woodland or you can continue your descent along the river bank on a narrow path and take in the wonderful ancient trees on the way back to the car park. I would say you need an hour this would include photo opportunities and just taking in the beautiful falls.
Great fun scrambling along paths beside the torrent. Good views of waterfalls in the woods. Lovely surrounding countryside. Atmospheric in the pouring rain.
