OL2 - Yorkshire Dales: S & W areas
A circular, full-day mountain (above 600m) walk in national park Yorkshire Dales (England) starting at Horton in Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire, about 13km (roughly 8 miles) long and unsuitable for families with children, prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.
This is one of the many great car-free walks that start and finish at stations on the Settle- Carlisle railway - Horton in Ribblesdale for this walk. Pen-y-ghent is the smallest of Yorkshire's Three Peaks, but add on the side trip to Plover Hill and it's a very satisfying day out. As well as the railway line, you can reach Horton-in-Ribblesdale by Dalesbus www.dalesbus.org

From the station, take in a deep breath of that lovely fresh Yorkshire air. Then, take the road west towards New Inn. Walk past The Crown Hotel (don't worry, we're coming back this way!) and follow the road into Horton Bridge.
To rate the walk, simply move your mouse over the stars to the left and click when it indicates how you like the walk.
The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
