Three Peaks Challenge Walk
Q. We are looking for any information on doing The Three Peaks this summer can any one Help. Its for Charity. Thank You
A. There are at least two 'Three Peaks' walks in the UK.
The first takes in the three highest summits in Scotland, Wales and England - namely:
1. Ben Nevis, Highland, Scotland
2. Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), Gwynedd, North Wales
3. Scafell Pike, Cumbria, North West England
All three peaks are usually completed within 24 hours and require back-up and transport getting from one mountain to the next.
The other (and more common) Three Peaks Walk is a (long!) single day hike starting in Horton-in-Ribblesdale and climbing the Yorkshire Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in one 37.5km (23.5 miles) circular walk.
We publish a comprehensive and fully up-to-date route guide for walking The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk:
along with a guide to The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge which should tell you everything you need to know.
