The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk - As a 2 or 3 day Walk STOP PRESS: IMPORTANT: The Yorkshire Three Peaks route was changed during the winter of 2012 after a number of challengers ended up waist deep in boggy ground. Instead of crossing Todber Moss, Black Dubb Moss and Red Moss, it now goes south of Hull Pot to cross Whitber Hill, Sell Gill Beck, Sell Gill Hill, Jackdaw Hole and Penyghent Churn to rejoin the original route on High Pasture. Our definitive route guide has been amended to reflect this change - so don't risk attempting this walk without all the latest route information.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk - As a 2 or 3 day Walk STOP PRESS: Our route guide now includes section timings (which take account of the fact that going up hill is slower than going down) so you will know whether or not you are on schedule to complete the walk within the required 12 hours. NB These timings have been adjusted to account for the new, slightly longer, version of the route established at the end of 2012.

There is no doubt that completing all 38km (24 miles) of The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk from Horton in Ribblesdale within the traditional 12 hour time limit is a real achievement - particularly if worthy charities benefit from all your valiant efforts.

However not everyone feels the need to complete The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk from Horton in Ribblesdale within the time limit. Indeed many regular walkers think it a shame that so much effort is extended by participants who notice virtually nothing of the surrounding countryside.

Countryside that includes some of the UK's finest scenery that everyone would enjoy if only they had more time to drink it all in.

So why not complete The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk from Horton in Ribblesdale over a weekend as a 2 day walk (see below) or over a long weekend as a 3 day walk (see below)?

Fortunately, due to the circular nature of The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk and the location of stations on the Carlisle to Settle Railway line it is perfectly feasible to complete the route over two or (even better) three separate days without the need to backpack or use two cars.

And of course, your days on The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Walk need not be consecutive. You could spread the walk out over a week, month or the different seasons of the year. The Yorkshire Dales are fantastic when covered with a sprinling of snow or bathed in autumn sunlight and a few less people!
