Adventures around Brimham Rocks

Whether you are looking for a bit of gentle activity or something more energetic there are plenty of opportunities available to exercise your body and mind at Brimham Rocks. With different areas of rocks, moorland and woodland there are experiences for all ages. To find your way around the rocks pick up a free welcome leaflet with a map on your arrival in the car park, and also try our new GeoSpotting activity.


To find the famous rocks and views at Brimham, download this guide GeoSpotting at Brimham (PDF / 1.1MB) download to your smartphone or tablet - or use your GPS device - to find some of the named rock formations and views. Tapping one of the hot links in the guide will bring up Google Maps showing where the feature is, and if you have location enabled on your phone Google Maps will also show you where you’re standing, satellite view is best.

GPS doesn't need a phone signal and it isn't affected by clouds. You will need a phone signal for Google Maps, and it seems to be mainly O.K. around Brimham Rocks for most networks, except at the bottom car park.

Join this international digital treasure hunt. We have geocaches hidden away around the rocks, moorland and woodland of Brimham Rocks. They combine two separate trails. First one is suitable for the novice geocacher staying closer to the rocky area. The second route, A(dvanced) B(rimham) C(aches), follows the Boundary Walk and offers a slight challenge to the more experienced treasure hunter. To get started just download the geocaching app, sign up and get exploring.
