Ingleborough has great access, with a railway station at Ribblehead on the doorstep of the mountain, many kilometres of trails to explore and good road links. We hope to give you a great experience of Wild Ingleborough whilst ensuring your visit considers the people who live and work in the area and doesn't harm the wildlife or farm animals that call this area home.

We encourage visitors to travel by train where possible. The Settle to Carlisle railway line passes through Ribblehead, providing easy access to the Ingleborough NNR directly from Leeds or Carlisle.

iNaturalist Project

iNaturalist is a website and an app, which allows people to upload their findings and wildlife spots while out in nature. We have set up a Wild Ingleborough project, so that visitors to the Ingleborough Massif can contribute to our understanding of the wildlife and plantlife present in the area.

The project will initially run until 1st January 2023, and can be viewed here:

You don’t need to be an expert to contribute – you can ask for help or confirmation with your identifications, and you can also use iNaturalist’s “seek” app to help you:
