Meeting in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, the walk begins by taking a steep path to ascend the imposing mountain Pen-y-Ghent (694m/2277ft), before continuing over a long flatter section through gorgeous Yorkshire Dales countryside in the direction of Whernside. Fantastic views of the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct give you a brief respite before starting the long ascent to Whernside (736m/2415ft), the highest mountain in Yorkshire. From the summit, you’re able to see the final mountain across the valley, descending to the village of Chapel-le-Dale before embarking on the final climb up a steep track to the top of the final mountain Ingleborough (723m/2372ft). Gasp in awe at the spectacular views over the picturesque Yorkshire Dales National Park, before descending past limestone pavement to the finish line at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, where you’ll be able to celebrate your fantastic achievement with the rest of the Henshaws team.
“I know that without the support of Henshaws throughout my life I wouldn’t be the confident, independent person that I am today." Tom
