Pen-y-ghent and Plover Hill, guided mountain walk

Horton-in-Ribblesdale National Park Car Park, Station Road
Horton-in-Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire BD24 0HE

A guided day walk as part of a small group to climb the mountain known as Pen-y-ghent, and then Plover Hill.

Starting from Horton-in-Ribblesdale we take a lane, then a track to gradually gain height before ascending steeply to the summit. 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).  Proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing are essential for this walk.

Advance booking and payment are required please via the web link.
