Hard going to complete all 3 Peaks in one day. Tough terrain and hard on the body and mentally. But completed as a group of 3 lads and happy with a time of 10 hours for our first time from start to finish back at the car. Bucket list

Did the Yorkshire 3 peaks in horrific weather, heavy rain and low cloud. I say low cloud because at the top of all the peaks you could see about 30ft as we were in the clouds! It was hard to find the trig point on Ingleborough such was the poor conditions! Coming down the trails were like waterfalls. Some of the last 4 miles the water was 10” deep with no way round. We had no views to look at and it was extremely hard work both mentally and physically. Thankfully the route is easy to follow or there is no way we could have done the walk and we are both seasoned walkers in the Dales. My wife did it again not long after with friends and had very similar conditions only this time with strong winds to accompany the rain! We intend to do it again when we know the conditions will be better and we can get the views which make this walk so special. Took 11hrs and given the conditions that was quite pleasing!! I could hardly walk the next day it took so much out of me, never been like that before after long hikes. So take heed of the advice and be prepared for all conditions, do not take this walk lightly, and pray for sunshine!!

Great hike - not for the faint hearted but very worth it. We went up Pen Y Ghent last but would not recommend this as it’s the steepest one. Overall, one of our favourite days hiking. Happy trails!

Lovely walk, great one to take the whole family. My 7 and 9 year old girls breezed round.

Bit of everything, lots of fields. Caution on the route as it neighbours a lot of private property

Great trail for those wanting to push and challenge themselves. Requires some pre prep (not a walk you wake up one morning and decide to do!) Did it in 8hours 45 Quite a busy trail (we did do it in the summer) so some parts can get a little crowded and you feel as though you’re being herded up the hill! Overall well worth doing

Great walk, easy to follow. Spotted an abundance of fantastic mushrooms on route. Shame the toilets were out of order!

Not a bad walk. We walked from Cracoe up to the top on a clockwise walk. The path is not easy to see or non existant in the rushes just after the wooden sheep folds, so just check where you need to head for. The views at the top are great.

This isa great walk which shows many parts of the yorkshire countryside. There are several occasions where there is no GPS signal and also it is not always well marked which can lead to a few wrong turns! You really need to take some maps and compass as a lot of timecan be wasted trying to find the right route. I would like to do this again one day .

This trail walks you through so many beautiful parts of Yorkshire country. Quaint villages, peaceful pastures, lonely hilltops, heather covered moors, old mines, and other historical places. I felt like I was walking in a different time period, almost. I loved it! It does require use of a guidebook, map & compass, as the way is not marked. Some parts are fairly strenuous.

Amazing day out,surrounded by some beautiful moors. Head out early and be prepared for the last assault climb...totally worth it.
