This Yorkshire Dales walk tackles Ingleborough from Chapel-le-dale. The initial stages of the ramble are straightforward, but the ascent of the hill itself is reminiscent of the stairs that Frodo climbed over the mountains in 'Lord of the Rings'. From the summit the descent is straightforward if irregular underfoot, and the final leg, parallel with the river Doe along the former Roman road, is easy. The views from the summit across the Yorkshire Dales National Park remain, as ever, magnificent. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description). A route profile is also provided.
