This path takes you past the river and to Deepdale Gill, which is a splendidly rugged area. The path then climbs and later you can take in the views of the three peaks, Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough. Evidence of the impending Lake District is now visible as you head towards the impressive Dent Head Viaduct.
