Walk Details…

At The Outdoor Guide we’re passionate about showing how the great outdoors is accessible for all – and this walk is a great example of that.

Our starting point is on the B6479 just south of Selside where there is a layby that you can park in. Take care when crossing the road though as it can be busy! We’re heading along the bridleway opposite which is the Pennine Bridleway.

If you are a wheelchair user – we’d recommend using a sturdy 4×4, all terrain wheelchair for this walk. Although our walk today starts on good tarmac, it will soon change to a grassy path after the gates.This is a well marked path that we’re taking. It’s worth noting that cattle may be grazing on the pastures here. If you have a dog with you – please ensure that they are under control around any livestock.

The walk takes in lovely views of Pen-y-Ghent and over to Crummockdale, with Pendle Hill.
As you reach the fencing you can look out across an amazing example of limestone pavement that the Yorkshire Dales is well known for. In late spring/summer, the limestone grasslands are full of colourful wild flowers. Look out for early-purple orchid, wild thyme, rockrose, bird’s-foot trefoil, limestone bedstraw, harebell and small scabious.

Follow the fence until you reach the wall. Here you turn 180 degrees and head back toward Ingleborough on the top of Sulber Nick. Once back at the signpost, you follow your tracks back to the start of the walk.

This walk has been designated a “Miles Without Stiles’ by the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Part of this walk is through open access land. Please follow any advice notices you may find and follow the Countryside Code; respect, protect and enjoy. More information can be found at

Access TOG verdict:
This is a lovely walk that offers some wonderful views out across the Yorkshire countryside. I highly recommend using a 4×4 all terrain wheelchair for this walk – especially in inclement weather.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
