Pen-y-Ghent

Pen-y-Ghent

Starting the Yorkshire Three Peaks from Horton-in-Ribblesdale, and walking in the traditional counterclockwise direction, Pen-y-Ghent is the first peak to be ascended. From the car park in Horton, the path to Pen-y-Ghent can be found along the road to Brackenbottom Farm, turning off to the left just before the farm itself, by the church.

On our organised events, we start at Chapel le Dale and walk Ingleborough first, to separate ourselves from the groups starting in Horton.

Paths on Pen-y-Ghent are marked on the OS Explorer OL2 Yorkshire Dales map (at the Three Peaks Shop).
