When beginning the Yorkshire Three Peaks in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, Pen-y-Ghent
is the first peak to be ascended. From the car park, the path to Pen-y-Ghent can
be found to the right, along the road to Brackenbottom farm, turning off to the
left just before the farm itself.
Paths on Pen-y-Ghent are marked on the
OS Explorer Yorkshire Dales (Southern and Western Areas) map.
