    The third day of the Great North Trail takes you into the Yorkshire Dales National Park, after the 54 mile (87km) route passing through Lancashire. It’s a big day, so make sure you start early and are equipped with plenty of provisions!

    Some of the best sections of the Pennine Bridleway feature today, including the descent to Lower Gorple Reservoir and a stunning ride over Extwistle Moor, zig zagging down the side of the valley on gravelly singletrack and winding up the other side. Weets Hill is a challenge mid way through the day, before a flatter section along the River Ribble. After that, the route heads along the Western edge of the Yorkshire Dales, heading into the market town of Settle - be sure to check out the Three Peaks Cycle Shop and Cafe. Finally pass by Langcliffe Scar and Stainforth before finishing this mega day in Austwick.
