A short continuation from Ponden, you'll reach another long climb as you make your way across Ickornshaw Moor. If your overnight is in Cowling, this is a short diversion from the path.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
