Parked in £2 per day car park just down from the Cafe. Hike was tough but enjoyable with fantastic views. The climb starts after 1/2 mile and for the most part it’s walkable with only a bit of scrambling. It’s just under 5miles to the...More

I' d have thought that the best place to arrange to join up would be Horton in Ribblesdale. There is a car park and a cafe ( if open) where you could meet up.

I would agree, it is fine as I have seen kids go up there but if it gets windy then I would head back down as the scrabble near the top is on a corner and can be a bit hairy. Definitely worth going though. I will be taking... More
