The Howgills and Limestone Trail (HALT), from Kirkby Stephen to Settle, is 76.5 miles in length and split into 7 stages passing through the same area as that of the latter stages of the Pennine Journey route. However, apart from a few hundred yards above Ingleton Falls, it takes an entirely different route but shares many of the Journey’s staging posts. The Howgills and Limestone Trail arrives in Sedbergh from Kirkby Stephen via the Howgills and the Lune valley. A short rural stretch through Ireby into Ingleton is preceded by the high ground of Middleton Fell and the pot-holing country close to Barbon.
The two routes cross on Ingleborough and again in Horton in Ribblesdale with the Trail’s final day taking in an ascent of Penyghent before reaching the spectacular Catrigg Force after crossing the stepping stones of Stainforth Beck. Both routes coincide, and end, at Settle station.
