The Obstacle Course

Public Transport based walk with Sarah Peppiatt.

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!).

You will need water and food for the whole day and appropriate equipment: including proper walking boots & waterproofs (even if the weather is supposed to be good).

Very soggy in places: gaiters etc will be useful. Dry socks may not go amiss either depending how soggy the conditions are.
