Valley of Desolation and Simon’s Seat Walk

This tranquil valley links the River Wharfe corridor to Barden Fell. Walk up through the valley and discover that nature has long since repaired the devastation. At its head walkers are rewarded with a beautiful waterfall. The walk continues up on to the moors to Simon’s Seat, where on a clear day, the views are breathtaking.

Simon’s Seat is a rocky outcrop 485m above sea level. The name is thought to relate to Druids who followed Simon Magus who claimed to be one of the Three Wise Men.
