Things to Do in Ingleton
Guided Walk: Whernside
Explore Yorkshire’s highest peak with Feet in the Clouds Guided Walking.
Admiring the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct close up first of all, we’ll then follow the famous Settle-Carlisle line a little way across the moor before leaving the ‘tourist path’ and following the Craven Way with views across Dentdale. We approach our summit via a steady climb up the extended summit ridge and past the beautiful Whernside Tarns on Knoutberry Hill. After a final climb up to the main summit ridge we’ll feel on top of the world (or Yorkshire, at least!) at 736m above sea level, with views across the Dales, and to the viaduct, Morecambe Bay and even the Lake District on a clear day. From here we descend to the valley bottom and through farmland until we pass directly under the viaduct and back to the Station Inn at Ribblehead for refreshments.
10 miles (16km) with 1800 feet (555m) of ascent and the same in descent.
10am – 4pm approx.

Packed lunch, snacks and water.
This route takes in a mixture of terrain including defined but steep and uneven paths, and boggy open moorland so sturdy appropriate footwear must be worn. This is a remote and exposed area so waterproofs and spare warm clothing should be carried at all times.
