What a hidden gem this trail is. We had asked a number of people to join us who commented, ”we know the Howgills etc etc . . .” and this did cross our minds as well.

But, did they miss out ???!!!!

We did have a few navigational problems in places, particularly on the route from Sedbergh to Barbon, which, as the guide book says, in bad weather would have been a bit of a nightmare, but we were fortunate in having lovely weather. The route is fantastic with so much variation and the views are amazing.

Thank you so much for a fabulous trail

Below is our itinerary and for accommodation we stayed in Sedbergh for four nights and then Ribblehead for two nights. For transport we used cars/taxis to the beginning /end of the walk each day as required.

Day 1 - Kirkby Stephen to Cautley 18miles
Day 2 – Cautley to Sedbergh 11 ¾
Day 3 – Sedbergh to Barbon 11.1/4 miles

Day 5 – Ingleton to Horton in Ribblesdale 12.1/2 miles (includes ascent of Inglebrough)
