The Peaks

Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis, the highest of the three peaks at 1344 metres (4409 ft), has only one main path, the path to Ben Nevis starts close to sea level, meaning much greater vertical ascent.

Scafell Pike

While Scafell Pike has several paths, most Three Peaks Challengers will begin at Wasdale Head, to the North of Wast Water.

Snowdon

While Snowdon has many paths with varying difficulty, most Three Peaks Challengers will follow either the Pyg Track or Miners Track, leaving from the Pen-y-Pass car park, on the A4086.
