The Yorkshire Three Peaks route
The three peaks of the Yorkshire Three Peaks are arranged in a triangle, with the River Ribble and two minor B roads between them. The total walking distance is 39.2km (24.5 miles). The Yorkshire Three Peaks includes, Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. The route can be started from Horton-in-Ribblesdale, Ribblehead or Chapel le Dale, and is a circular route finishing at the same point. We normally start at Horton.
The Ordnance Survey Explorer OL2 is the map required for the complete route, we can send you a copy in the post prior to the event, just add it to your order when you book on.

The postcodes for these start points are: Chapel le Dale, LA6 3AR (limited free parking, usually quiet). Horton-in-Ribblesdale, BD24 0HE (lots of parking, £4 for the day, very busy at weekends), Ribblehead, LA6 3AS (some free parking).
