Dowload the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Route

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge is about 24 miles in total and most of it is not sign posted. It is therefore important to be ready and understand the route before you commit to this adventure. Today new technology is at hand and you can use your smartphone or a handheld GPS device to follow the route. On this page you will find digital copies of the yorkshire 3 peaks route that you can download for free – these are GPX, MMO and KML files to use on such devices. Traditionally you will start the challenge from Horton in Ribblesdale but I have also created the files starting from Ribblehead and Chapel le Dale which are two alternative starts.

By clicking on one of the buttons above, you’ll be directed to one of the three starting points. As well as being able to download the files, you will be able to check them on external websites such as Walk4Life and Trailzilla. I trust these sites for their performance and accuracy. I hope you will find them useful too and might want to use them in the future.

Horton in Ribblesdale Start

Horton is the most popular place to start and finish the route. If you want to complete the challenge officially and get your certificate you need to record your time at the local Tourist Information Centre. The village is also really accessible both by road and train. There is plenty of accommodation around and parking should be relatively easy – except in Summer when it can be quite busy.

Ribblehead Start

Ribblehead and its famous viaduct is a really good alternative to start the Yorkshire 3 Peaks route. It’s also accessible both by road and train – although there are fewer trains stopping here compared to Horton. However in terms of accommodation, there aren’t that many options but to stay at the Station Inn.

Chapel le Dale Start

Old Hill Inn in Chapel le Dale

This last location is the most remote of the three. At the foot of Ingleborough and on the road to Ingleton, here you will find the Old Hill Inn, a perfect place to get food and beer and spend the night. There is a campsite near the pub too.
