Brief route description

From Ribblehead, head left on to the B6255, and follow the path to the side of the viaduct, but not crossing underneath it. Continue North, crossing the railway, heading towards the peak of Whernside. To head towards Ingleborough, continue along the ridge, heading towards the B6255, and the Hill Inn.

On our organised walks, Whernside is our third and final summit, before returning to Chapel le Dale.

The path on Whernside is clearly marked on the OS Explorer OL2 Yorkshire Dales (Southern and Western Areas) map.
