Starting at the foot of Pen-y-ghant, you will initially ascend down onto the limestone moors which are a major characteristic of this section of the Pennine Way. The end of your first days walking you can reward yourself with some Wensleydale Cheese. The following days take you over country meadows, up and down over the moors pass some beautiful waterfalls. The gentle rolling of the moors will build you up for the highest point on the Pennine Way, Cross Fell. The final day is a delightful stroll alongside the river and across farmlands ending in the quiet village of Knarsdale.
