Welcome to Walk the Three Peaks
Walk the Three Peaks is the new on-line guidebook for walking routes up Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike on the National 3 Peaks Challenge.

We've included full route descriptions for the Standard 3 peak challenge routes as well as links on our sister sites dedicated to the individual three peak summits of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.
