Overview

'The National Three Peaks Challenge is a well known phrase amongst the more adventurous. This challenge involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours ... The three peaks are: [1] Ben Nevis (1,344 m or 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland; [2] Scafell Pike (978 m or 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England; [3] Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (1,085 m or 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales ... Organised versions of the National Three Peaks Challenge are available, while many groups organise their own.'

However, we must note that the Challenge is 'putting increasing pressure on the same localities throughout the summer months, with considerable negative impact on the environment, local residents, rescue services and amenities. The National Parks/Local Authorities and landowners are responding to the impact of this event by discouraging further growth and beginning to operate a stronger management regime for it'.

Membership of the NLAF may be applied for from Northamptonshire County Council, whose responsibility it is to ensure there is a reasonable balance in the representation of the interests of public access user groups and landowner/occupier groups. Members must serve in a personal capacity to represent public interests rather than the views of any particular organisations ... Members of the public are usually entitled to attend meetings, however we are currently looking to welcome new members to the Forum.'
