Overview

Join us for a figure of eight walk to celebrate the summer solstice. The morning walk is 3.5 miles of easy walking from Highgate woods to Alexandra park and back. The afternoon is 6 miles of moderate walking on some of the lesser trod paths of Hampstead heath and the extension. Join us for either or both walks or just for the picnic in the open space in  the middle of Highgate woods (outside gate to cafe). Bring some nibbles to share at the summer solstice picnic.
