Grasmere DIY Walking Weekend - 2nd to 4th November

2018-11-02 17:00:00 2018-11-02 23:59:00 Europe/London Grasmere DIY Walking Weekend - 2nd to 4th November

Grassmere – is one of the most visited places by Take A Hike which can make it seem a bit samey, but there is a good reason we keep going!

It has good low cost accommodation, pubs, scenery and a selection of mountain ranges that are doable in all weathers and ideal for beginners.

This is a “DIY” walking weekend which means that you choose and book your accommodation yourself but a leader will guide the walks. see https://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-grasmere-butharlyp-howe

Saturday and Sunday’s led walks are to be decided depending on weather and the group’s ability.

Expect hardish mountain walks in cold conditions up Wainwright mountain routes over 9 miles with icy steep rocky paths but nothing too severe, great fun and well within most people’s ability.

Beginners are welcome, we want you to come and you will be supported but try do a few Yorkshire Dale wintery practice walks first to test your ability and equipment.

Please register with the organiser beforehand for full details, don’t just turn up otherwise you may not know the walk start location, start times and other essential information.
