The Yorkshire Dales National Park is honoured to have within its boundary the mountains Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, collectively known as the Three Peaks. They cover 160 square kilometres of upland in the west of the Park, rise to 736m at their tallest and form part of the Pennine range that runs through the backbone of central and northern England.
Organising a Yorkshire Three Peaks walk?
The number of organised walks puts pressure on the area, and can result in negative impacts on residents, rescue services, the environment, local amenities and other users.
Help keep the Three Peaks special for all to enjoy by ensuring your walk is well planned, respects the environment and supports the local community. Here’s how:
Let us know about your walk with our free notification scheme and receive our free Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk Guidelines. These guidelines will ‘point you in the right direction’ about what you need to organise and consider to ensure your walk minimises its impact and supports the area.
Circulate the Yorkshire Three Peaks Code of Conduct to your group. These simple messages show what every individual can do to help keep the Three Peaks special for all to enjoy. Pass them on to everyone in your group.
