Yorkshire Three Peaks

The Yorkshire Three Peaks, in the Yorkshire Dales, represents a challenge for the keenest of walkers. To scale three mountains in one day is no mean feat and provides an exhilarating and demanding trek in some of the most spectacular countryside England has to offer.

This region was shaped by glaciers thousands of years ago, and its wild beauty, with striking limestone outcrops and unusual rock formations, motivates us as we walk. We also see the famous Ribblehead Viaduct enroute. This is an Challenging one-day event over wild, rugged and exposed landscapes; at 24 miles it forms an enormous challenge for walkers.

Whether you’re a pro hiker or just starting out, everyone is welcome on this trip organised by our Yorkshire Regional Committee.

Arrive at Yorkshire Dales

We meet between 6am -7am at our start point near the village of Horton in Ribblesdale for registration and a briefing, and after warming up our muscles, we set off! We take the Pennine Way towards our first peak – the distinctive stepped outcrop of Pen-y-Ghent. As we gain height, we enjoy views across to our remaining two peaks, Whernside and Ingleborough. Clear, well-worn paths and stone steps take us quite steeply up to the summit (694m). As we walk up the valley our path runs parallel with the Settle to Carlisle railway line. At Ribblehead we can see the high, rounded peak of Whernside and we gradually begin our ascent, following a slabbed path all the way to the summit (736m). The last section is particularly steep but our efforts are rewarded with the views and the knowledge that we have only one summit left to go! We descend off the mountain and head to the village of Chapel-le-Dale. We soon reach the base of Ingleborough (723m), where a stepped path zig-zags fairly steadily to the summit of our final peak, where we can enjoy the views and celebrate our third and final climb! We descend over Simon Fell heading back towards the finish line, where we will celebrate before saying our farewells and heading home at approximately 7pm.
