The Obstacle Course

Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.

21.0 mi


2.5 miles of almost continuous off-path, miles of rough wet paths, several steep ascents and descents & some awkward stiles/bridges - your legs will certainly know about it  by the end! The views and the variety of the landscape will make up for it though (weather permitting!).
