Dent to Aye Gill Pike Walk Details

Aye Gill Pike is only 556m high, and misses out on being a ‘mountain’ by the usual standards. The summit however, provides exceptional views across to the Howgills in one direction and the Yorkshire Three Peaks in the other.

This route starts off in Dent, and follows a mainly pathless route once you leave the track from Dent. Note that sections of the route are along a permissive path and that you should check the YDNP website below in order to confirm that access has not been limited when you intend to travel.
