Pen-y-ghent from Horton in Ribblesdale

15 Oct 2023 @ 7:30 am 7:00 pm

Start in Yorkshire Dales National Park Car Park, Horton-In-Ribblesdale, Settle, North Yorkshire, BD24 0HF.

Parking: Possible on the road just above the the Golden Lion for free, Golden Lion charge £4 per day or use the previous one mentioned.

9.45 am for 10 am start. 9.2 miles.

Head up steeply to Pen-y-ghent then over to Plover Hill. On our return maybe visit Hull and/or Hunt Pots depending on time. Past Horton Scar back to the car park.

Small scramble: Couple of rocky areas to negotiate just below summit. High steps on good rock. Also, descent from Plover Hill steep on stone steps.

Dogs: Two high stiles between Pen-y-ghent and Plover Hill but with a little help no problem, Bruno did them both on his own. Otherwise no dog restrictions but lots of sheep around so on the lead.

Boggy areas: Pen-y-ghent to Plover Hill lots of surface water and some boggier areas.

There is potential for a shortened route from Pen-y-ghent side down the Pennine Way to Tarn Bar for the slower walkers.

Overall a varied and interesting route with the option to curtail from the summit as mentioned.

Maybe a pint in the Golden Lion Hotel before heading home.

Further details re car sharing etc to be arranged nearer the time.
