The next section to the Langdon Beck area includes some of the highlights of the Pennine Way including the breath-taking High Force waterfall and beautiful scenery of the hills and the River Tees. If this is your last section for the day, you'll likely overnight in Forest in-Teesdale or Langdon Beck, both a short diversion off the Way after crossing Cronkley Bridge.

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.
