Day 1

Starting from Horton-in-Ribblesdale we take a lane, then a track to gradually gain height before ascending steeply to the summit of Pen-y-ghent. If it is a clear day we'll enjoy stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Ingleborough and Whernside. After a short rest, we'll continue along a broad grassy ridge to Plover Hill. Our descent route will take us past the phenomenon of Hull Pot - the largest natural hole in Britain!
The distance is about 9 miles/14km with approx 650 metres of ascent. Part of the steep section to the summit involves some easy scrambling (using hands as well as feet to climb up rocks). Good hiking boots and outdoor clothing are essential.
