The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk

The classic walk in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a circular route. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long and takes in approximately 5,000 feet (1,600 metres) of climbing. Traditionally this walk is completed within a target of 12 hours in order to join the 'Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club' which was run by the Pen-y-ghent Café.

Whernside walk from Ribblehead Viaduct

A circular from the Ribblehead Viaduct over one of the 'Yorkshire Three Peaks'. The walk follows the 'Three Peaks walk' path for most of its route, initially following alongside the Settle to Carlisle railway line, before heading up on the path towards Dent. The path then steepens over Knoutberry Hill before following a wall along to the summit of Whernside. The panorama from here ranges from Pendle Hill to the South, round to the Morecambe Bay and then the Lakeland Fells and the Howgills. The return is via a steep drop down to Bruntscar, before leaving the 'Three Peaks path' to turn left eventually passing Winterscales to come out through a tunnel under the railway. The outward path is then followed for the short journey back to the parking area.

Pen-y-ghent walk from Horton-in-Ribblesdale

Embark on a circular journey from Horton in Ribblesdale, traversing Pen-y-ghent, one of the renowned 'Yorkshire Three Peaks'. The trail takes you to Brackenbottom, then steadily ascends over Brackenbottom Scar, merging with the iconic Pennine Way path.

This path leads you to the majestic summit of Pen-y-ghent, offering a breath-taking view. The descent takes you back via a short detour of Hull Pot. The return to Horton is a scenic route along the enclosed walled Horton Scar lane, providing panoramic views of the entire area.

Janet's Foss, Gordale Scar and Malham Cove walk from Malham

A circular from Malham, taking in all the natural wonders the area has to offer. Malham is a small village in the Yorkshire Dales, but is a great draw amongst walkers, ornithologists and tourists in general, due to the easy accessibility of the natural wonders surrounding it. The walk starts in the village centre and follows Malham beck and then Gordale beck, before passing through a delightful wooded area to reveal Janet's Foss, a waterfall set in its own little amphitheatre. A few yards further on, Gordale Scar is reached, a gorge with limestone cliffs over 100m high. The walk retraces its steps to Gordale bridge and then on over a short climb to reach the limestone pavement above Malham Cove. After admiring the pavement, head down to the foot of the cove and away from it to reveal the cove in its full splendour. The cove is over 80m high and 300m wide and once was the site of a waterfall higher than Niagara falls! The cove is a favourite with ornithologists, with the peregrine falcon a visitor here. From the cove, a gravelled path is followed back to the road, which leads through Malham back to the car park.
