Re: Are the 3 peaks paths open

The paths are neither open nor closed. Its public right of way, but up to individuals to judge if its safe or not. At the moment the weather and visibility is good. Theres been a lot of rain, so the ground is wet. For this reason possibly more people than usual are choosing to start from Ribblehead ...

Re: 3 Peaks Challenge from Ingleton

Walking the three peaks from Ingleton, I would personally ascend Ingleborough first. The main reason is that after you have done Whernside as the last peak, you then have downhill all the way back. The sun will be dropping in the west and, on a clear day, you will have views out towards the sea. Aft...

Re: Yorkshire 3 Peaks - Solo

Generally speaking its not a good idea to walk in the hills alone. But assuming you are going to do it there are a few things to make the walk safer and more enjoyable over and above the usual advice.

Re: Organising the challenge for a large group.

The route follow public rights of way, so yes you can just turn up and go. However with such a large number of people I would say you have a duty of care, especially if this is a work thing, to make sure everyone is as safe as possible. Groups of this size should really have a support team to help c...

Re: Cycling?

You can't cycle the 3 peaks route that the walkers take. Cyclists aren't allowed on footpaths only on bridleways. The 3 peaks are a fragile environment and if you cycle on foothpaths you would likely get stopped by walkers or the police. But there are plenty of excellent routes you can take that are...
