Walk Details…

If you’ve been searching for wheelchair walks along Sulber Nick or looking to explore Horton-In Ribblesdale and the Yorkshire Three Peaks area as a disabled walker, then look no further. Walking with wheels around Ingleborough is easier than you might think!

This circular walk takes us through the accessible Nature Reserve of Ingleborough and is suitable for someone who is travelling in a sturdy 4×4 all-terrain wheelchair. I personally used a TerrainHopper when heading out on this route.

Our walk begins at the bridleway just south of Selside, where the Pennine Bridleway crosses the main road.There is off road parking available on the opposite side of the road. Take care when crossing as it is a busy road.

The start of the walk is on a good tarmac track, which changes into a grassy pathway once past the gates. The track is well sign posted, but know that you may come across cattle on this walk.

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 know 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 walk 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

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".
