This is a long route up Ingleborough but takes in some superb limestone features such as caves, gorges and limestone pavement. Make sure you have the camera ready


The ascent of Whernside involves a long steady climb and a lovely high-level ridge. The descent is steeper with a final flat section through the fields to finish underneath the spectacular Ribblehead viaduct.


This is a great walk full of interest and is the easiest of the Three Peaks to climb. The paths are clear and navigation relatively straight-forward. Make sure you are suitably equipped
