Yorkshire Rhino

45 km / 28 miles

N Yorkshire
The Yorkshire Rhino is a 28-mile challenge walk that traverses the Northern fells of the Yorkshire Dales, taking in the peaks of Lovely Seat, Great Shunner Fell, Hugh Seat and Roganís Seat. The challenge is to complete the walk in less than 14 hours. On successful completion of the walk you will be entitled to receive a bleached denim cloth badge and a certificate.

The walk is a strenuous undertaking, terrain is boggy and rugged. Pathfinding, even though it follows many boundary fences, requires care and reasonable mountain experience as well as good navigation skills, especially in adverse weather conditions. Mobile phone connection is intermittent. Refreshments and shelter can be found in Ravenseat (seasonal), Muker and at Tan Hill Inn.

Important: Access during the driven grouse shooting season. Access to Great Shunner Fell, Knoutberry Currack, Hugh Seat and Little Sled Dale and Roganís Seat may be restricted from the (vainglorious) 12th of August onwards, please check in advance.
