Our next hike is very soon, 2nd March! This will take us over to the Old Man of Coniston which is an 806m tall mountain in the SW corner of the lakes. the area looks stunning you do not want to miss out on this!
The route is only about 12km so its going to be quite intense, perfect for preparing for the 3 peaks challenge coming up this summer!
As always you will need plenty of water, food, waterproofs and walking boots, no trainers.
The trip will be £15 and its a long drive so we will be setting off early in the morning, meeting at the SU at 7.15.
If you have any questions please let me know ASAP
