Download GPS FileNine Standards Rigg, Near Nateby
Nine Standards Rigg is a collection of large roughly built cairns that offer a commanding view across the Vale of Eden. Technically the summit is not within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park although most of the approach route is. The path also forms part of the "Coast to Coast" route and thus sees busy periods. It should be noted that this walk crosses wild and desolate moorland that can be very wet underfoot after rain. It also should not be attempted unless you are familiar with this type of terrain and have suitable navigation skills should visibility worsen during the walk.
