Dent to Ribblehead via Whernside Tarns

2019-09-21 10:30:00 2019-09-21 16:00:00 Europe/London Dent to Ribblehead via Whernside Tarns

Walk Description: A walk from Dent train Station to Whernside (736m) via Whernside Tarns – 12 miles – approx. 6 hours – In my view this is one of the best ascents of Whernside and unlikely to see too many people until you reach the top! The highlights are the walk along Dentdale and the Tarns which are surprisingly little-visited.

Hope to see you there!

Travel: You can drive to Ribblehead train station and either park in the car park which is limited or on the road side and take the 10:39 train to Dent (Single).  Alternatively you can take the train from Leeds direct to Dent station passing through Ribblehead and going over the viaduct and then get the return train later in the day from Ribblehead to Leeds.

Leeds to Dent – 09:17 – 10:48 £19.20 (Return)

Ribblehead to Leeds – 16:14 – 17:39, 17:42 – 19:06, 19:48 – 21.06
