Walking and Rambling around Ingleton
Nearby Chapel-le-Dale is the historical starting point of the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge. So if you’re planning to take on Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, then YHA Ingleton is ideal. Of course, days in the great outdoors don’t have to involve feats of endurance; if you’d like to relax in rare surroundings, we emphatically recommend the village’s Waterfall Trails and their wondrous oak woodlands and cascades. Thornton Force is the most famous and it’s quite magnificent.
One of the favourite past times of many visitors to Ingleton. Hundreds of paths and routes are available for all levels of fitness to experience the limestone cliffs and explore the hidden beauty of the stunning Yorkshire Dales.

You can enjoy a walk to the top of Ingleborough from the village or for the more serious walkers the Three Peaks Circuit of: Ingleborough. Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent is on offer!
