Details

Day 1

After meeting in the car park and having a chat about the day's adventure, we'll walk through the village and start our ascent. The route we take from the village of Clapham was described by Wainwright as ‘The finest of all routes up Ingleborough.’ It avoids the busy '3 Peaks' paths. We walk through the privately owned Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail which has several points of interest along the route. We then enter the spectacular ravine of Trow Gill, and we take a look at the famous Gaping Gill where a stream cascades into a large underground chamber. Then it's onward and upward to the summit of Ingleborough. If it's a clear day there are amazing views from the summit plateau.
Our descent is via a different route where we will have the opportunity to see some good examples of limestone pavement, which is a distinctive geological feature, found in this area.
The distance is about 10 miles/16km with about 730 metres of ascent on paths that can be rough and stony in places with steep sections, and can be wet and boggy in other places. A good pair of hiking boots is essential as if comfortable outdoor clothing, including a waterproof jacket and trousers.
