Timing of the Yorkshire Three Peaks

Annual timing

No official rules have been laid down as to the time of year when the Yorkshire Three Peaks can be completed, but do remember that climbing the individual peaks is very popular over the summer, so it is sensible to exclude June and July.

Because of the length of this walk, daylight should not be an issue if completed during the summer. Paths are well kept and mostly smooth.

Timing on the day

Most would attempt the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in twelve hours. This is very much do-able by most able walkers, and is really just a long, simple hill walk. The walk can be extended to climb a peak per day.
