We did the walk on 22nd February in the dry after experiencing a very wet week. The wind was blowing a gale though so it was a bit tricky working our way up to the cave entrance. Otherwise a lovely short walk- clocking in at bang on your 6.6km on my Garmin. Yes it is hilly but this is nothing to many of the walks around this area so a nice little introduction to walking for the less experienced.

Great walk but much longer than 6.6k!! It took us 2.5 hrs and we all got blisters as not quite prepared for so far and so steep. Lovely walk otherwise.

Aug 30, 2019. Clockwise up Clapham car park then left of St James Church up toward Ingleborough Caves, then left and straight gentle up, then steady up stairs and slabs to Little Ingleborough. Continue across via top ridge to Ingleborough and left to summit. Views are as described - much worth it. Path down to Simon Fell provides great views too. However, unless continuing to B64179 or Horton-In-RIbbledale, the extra 4 1/2 miles from Simon Fell down to trail head did not feel time well spent Suggestion: After Simon Fell, cut back to below lower Ingleborough and return to trail head. Conditions: Cloudy, very windy, warm below, bitter wind cool on peak. Decent visibility throughout hike. Drizzle at times. Def good hike.

Great walk with some more challenging climbs which are rewarded with some amazing views. We had every kind of weather on this walk with very little visibility at the top so go prepared. I noticed we could have shortened it slightly which might have been better for my 8 year old son as after climbing the mountain the route does get a bit flat and less exciting.

Great walk despite the weather. no viability at the top but this app helped amazingly! We didn't go out as wide on the suggested loop black round but glad we didn't as you are greeted with some great limestone formations to walk through.

Thankfully we had great weather for walking this trail today following yesterday’s (July 25th) record heatwave. The highlight of this trail was St Gregory’s minster which is well worth exploring. Last section of the route on way back toward Kirkbymoorside was quite overgrown and not easy to walk, not sure the landowner is keeping the trail path updated, definitely avoid if wet! Generally nice open field views.

Hard going, but worth it in the end

My first mountain. A sharp incline early on and a long downhill section. I did this in preparation for the three peaks trail in June and it’s certainly given me a good idea of how difficult it will be. Great views!

My family really enjoyed this walk. It had a nice variety of scenery and we enjoyed the slight detour to see the cave. The GPS was helpful. It was lambing season so we had to keep the dog on a lead 50% of the time. Thanks for providing this walk, would love to see more walks in the Yorkshire Dales.

Great walk. Difficult in parts especially climbing the steps. Very rewarding with outstanding views

fabulous route, lovely views, secluded feel away from roads, cars, noise, etc.

hi just completed walk this morning a really nice walk no hills instructions spot on used gps tracker as well which l think is a really good little device highly recommended regards P Bailes

Very enjoyable walk, lovely views! Quite hilly - after the 2 boot walks we’ve done was surprised this was only a 3 boot... not yet done a 4 boot so intrigued to see what a 4 boot is like! Had to take a slight detour as one of the fields had a bull in it blocking the stile.

A very good walk some really nice views...i really recomend this walk.

Done as part of the 3 peaks challenge a deceiving accent across the fields and up the steps much harder than it looks. The zig zag steps up the face is by far the hardest part but feel great great once completed.

Now I know where the saying up hill and down dale and found this walk lots of up hill but the spectacular views were worth it. Only just made it back before a squall hit us so really pleased we weren’t in the very exposed part of the walk.

Lovely walk however we got lost! The part where it says go through the “new gate”on the right. There was no gate so we kept going. Finally realised we must have gone wrong. Returned and found the “ new gate “ was in the ground. We only just made it back before dark. ADMIN RESPONSE: Sorry to hear you missed the turn due to the broken gate, but glad you enjoyed the walk and made it back safely. We have removed the word new from the description to help other people. For future walks, remember the best way to avoid any wrong turns is to use the App's live GPS map, which shows your live location relative to the route so you will always know when to turn.

Loved this walk on a spring evening. Instead of the steep woodland section before reaching St Gregory's Minster, you can walk along the riverbed in the valley if it is dry as it has been recently.
