Responsible National Three Peaks walking
The Three Peaks Partnership protects the landscapes around Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. Here are their tips for planning your challenge whilst conserving the fragile mountain environment:
Pick a suitable date
It’s best to avoid public and school holidays and weekends, as they’re very busy and place huge pressure on local amenities.
Do it over 3 days
The physical challenge is the same and you’ll get more time to enjoy each mountain, while also reducing your impact on the area.
Plan your route carefully
There are many ways to climb each peak - some far more dangerous than others - so take time to research each ascent properly.
Take suitable kit
You need kit that can cope with whatever the mountains throw at you. The kit list in this section is a good starting point.
Register your challenge
Make a donation
The safety of you and your group is the number one priority. Don’t worry if you can’t make the summit - the mountains will be there another day.
