Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Direct Transport based walk with Steve Rawlins.

24.0 mi


Rescheduled from Saturday May 30th.

Due to the distance and time this challenge may take, it will only be open to a restricted number of walkers, please email to be added to the list.

The Classic Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, a truely great walk.

Starting at the Cafe in Horton In Ribblesdale, we'll quickly start the ascent up Pen-y-ghent (694m) which includes a little mild scrambling and than have a bit of a long low level walk until we reach the Ribblesdale Viaduct and start to climb Whernside (736m). The ascent is long and gradual but offers great views (sometimes!) and the descent is quite steep and quick. After a quick toilet break at the makeshift cafe we'll head towards the final Peak of Ingleborough (723m). The climb is steep and tough but once we're at the top that's the end of the climbing for the day. Once we leave the summit it's all downhill as we head back towards Horton In Ribblesdale.

Accomodation (at 2 pubs) and camping is available at Horton if required but it's advisable to book early.

Although it's a meet at the start walk please email me if you need possible transport or if you can kindly offer transport and I'll do my best to help.

This is a tough challenge so reasonable fitness is required and full waterproofs are vital (regardless of the forecast). 

There is a drop out point in Ribblesdale where you can get the train back to Horton.

There are several pay and display car parks near the walk start - Penyghent Cafe.
