National Three Peaks Route
Each of the three mountains allows walkers to follow various routes - see our Ben Nevis, Snowdon, and Scafell
Pike pages for more information.
National Three Peaks Maps
The National Three Peaks Challenge driving route is 462 miles long, and takes around
ten hours in total, in good traffic - the first section from Fort William to Wasdale Head is five-and-a-half hours, and the second section from Wasdale Head to Llanberis takes around four-and-a-half hours.
We advise taking a road map and marking the route in advance, rather than relying on satnav.
The same applies to navigation while walking. Everyone in the group should have
a copy of the walking maps, and know how to use the maps with a compass.
The OS National Three Peaks Challenge Map in the Three Peaks Shop includes detailed mapping of all three mountains, and a road map, all in one folding map.
