Our family walks follow routes that are chosen to offer a leisurely stroll for families with younger children who want to explore the countryside. While we endeavour to choose paths that don’t provide too much of a challenge we must let you know that the routes for this weekend are not pushchair friendly. We also have not been able to help ourselves in wanting to share some of our most spectacular landscapes while believing that no one is too young to reach some of the best views with a little encouragement. So, while we are in this magical landscape this route does have a few ascents that we will take at a comfortable pace for all.
We will Climb Offa’s Dyke Path from Visitors centre to join the path that hugs the top of the hill and take the path through Kinsley Woods. The trees you see (mostly Larch and Douglas Fir) were planted in the 1950s when the need for home-grown timber was high after WWII. The initials ER can be seen in the autumn on the northeastern and southwestern slopes of the wood. The trees were planted in honor of the Queen's coronation in 1953.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Under 18-year-olds are encouraged to attend with a responsible adult.
Do I need to be able to map-read?
No! Walk Leaders will have the training required and the routes beforehand.
Can I bring my dog to the event?
Yes, dogs are welcome to attend. All dogs must be always kept on lead. Please be aware that there are numerous stiles which your dog may need to be lifted over. The Big Welsh Walk takes place in an agricultural area and there will be livestock- the owner is always responsible for the dog. Please also be mindful of the length of challenge you and your dog are undertaking along with the weather forecast for the day.
