For  both the Ultra distances the beautiful Malham Tarn and spectacular Gordale Scar are visited with breath-taking  views of the best of the Dales and are not to be missed.

The 50 mile distance  heads off after  Gordale Scar and then joins the Pennine Way all the way to the peak of  Pen-y–ghent ascending Fountains Fell along  the way
