The Yorkshire 3 Peaks – A Splendid Stroll

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks – A Splendid Stroll

Magnificent! That is the feeling I get when I do this walk and the feeling you get when you complete it. I enjoy it so much that I come back to do again every 3 months.  Each time is just as enjoyable as the last and the varying seasons make it a wonder on the eyes, as well as feet/legs.

The official challenge = Complete the circular walk of 25 miles (40 km) within 12 hours.  However on route you must go up and down the summits of 3 peaks, Pen-y-ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m).  As well of lots of climbing and descents there is of course the large distances between them.  This ground is famous for being boggy, rugged or rocky.  A little bit of everything.

No matter what the weather holds you still have the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and the Ribble Valley around you, plus over the years I have had the pleasure of being joined by wonderful friends and family on this day long adventure.  This photo slideshow can only show some idea of it’s beauty and distance.  I look forward to my next visit and maybe you want a challenge? icon smile The Yorkshire 3 Peaks   A Splendid Stroll

The feet know you’ve done it, the legs will tell you they’ve done something, but, totally satisfying!

If you want to join in my next 3 peaks then it will be in December.  Let me know.
