Cicerone says:

An inspirational guidebook to 50 great walks throughout the Pennines. A wide range of routes in this larger format book have been selected to help walkers explore all aspects of this beautiful upland area. The walks are all graded, from moderate to strenuous, and are between 6 and 13 miles long, with plenty of options for both first-time and more experienced walkers. Ranging between the North Pennines, Howgills, Yorkshire Dales, South Pennines and Dark Peak, this guide offers the best of the mass of fell and moor that makes up the backbone of England. Routes include Cross Fell, Wild Boar Fell, Ingleborough, Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent, Pendle Hill, Kinder Downfall and a traverse of Ilkley Moor and many are suitable for fell running. The circular walks are all graded, making this guidebook equally suitable for first-time and more experienced walkers looking to explore new corners of the Pennines. All routes are illustrated with 1:40,000 OS mapping and plenty of colour photography.

For nearly 50 years Cicerone have been producing guidebooks on recognised treks, regions, areas and general tips for hikers.

We have used them countless times and they've always provided excellent insight and knowledge that you only get through experience, giving you the edge to make your trip a success and more enjoyable too.

If you're a gram counter you can easily remove sections of the book to take with you making your own ultra-lightweight guidebook with only the essential sections that you require.

The Pennines can be tackled whatever the time of year, although the highest summits and the remote moors can be problematic in winter conditions or poor visibility


Walks are grouped into five areas: the North Pennines, the Howgills, the Yorkshire Dales, the South Pennines and the Dark Peak


Walks are graded from 'Moderate' to 'Strenuous' but unlike other mountainous areas where the ability to cope on rock and steep slopes is required, among the Pennines there also needs to be awareness of the deceptive nature of the landscapes, which, in spite of relative proximity to towns and cities, often feel remarkably remote; a sure grasp on navigational skills and self-protection is essential at all times

Must See

From the highest summits of the Pennines, to the seductive valleys of the Yorkshire Dales and the rugged landscapes of the South Pennines, this guide embraces all that is inspiring about the rolling Pennine landscapes
