New Three Peaks path opens
Bookmark and Share
A new pathway has opened up on the Three Peaks Route in the Yorkshire Dales.

The new route offers an alternative way between Pen-y-ghent and Ribblehead, avoiding the eroded Horton Moor and Black Dubb Moss area.

It means walkers will not find their hiking boots sinking into the mud so much and the national park authority has said early feedback about the new section has been good.

Area ranger for the Three Peaks Steve Hastie said: "It is far easier to navigate - a lot drier - and it gives people a fantastic view of Ingleborough, Whernside and Far Moor Bridge."

He also said it is worth taking a "short detour" from the path to see Hull Pot and Hunt Pot, while people will not have to worry about clambering over stiles or getting through gates, as there are none.

Initiatives to repair and maintain paths around the Three Peaks have included the Lion Inn in Settle producing a platter called The Butcher's Board, with 15p from each one sold going to the national park authority's Three Peaks Project.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801484165-ADNFCR
