If your looking for a short hike, this is definitely worth doing. (I did it in 3hrs 10 mins)
Unfortunately I picked an afternoon when the mist was down, so didn't see much of the view.
An easy trail to follow, with a reasonably good footpath

A good circular route with excellent views of the Ribblehead viaduct. The path is extremely well marked and heavily trafficked. The descent is steep and you need to take a hard right turn, after the descent to take the Bridleway back towards the viaduct. The wind was extremely strong on our walk with very little shelter along the ridge. The route can get very busy on weekends as it is part of the 3-peaks challenge.
