    This long-weekend hiking trip will take in total either three or four days to complete (including travelling time there and back), but it is very much worth the extra days off.

    It is a fantastic taster of the Yorkshire countryside and Pennine Way and is highly suitable if you haven't been hiking in this area before or want to take a less experienced friend to try to persuade them of the joys of hiking.

    This trip is a superb walk with a lot of varied scenery, many highlights and interesting sights.

    The walking is not difficult and the navigation is easy, but the rewards are fantastic as you walk through some of Yorkshire's stunning scenery along some of the best bits of the iconic Pennine Way past Malham Cove with its fascinating limestone pavements and then climbing the distinctive Pen-Y-Ghent, one of Yorkshire's famous three peaks.

    A third day, highly recommended option involves staying another night in Horton-in-Ribblesdale and topping off your weekend by completing the other two peaks: Ingleborough and Whernside.
