Womens Hill Skills - Friday 20th January

Monthly walks for women living in West Cumbria. Ennerdale - Bowness Knott

  • Ended
  • meet outside Whitehaven Library

Course or workshop description

These days are specifically for women living in West Cumbria. We'll go on a different walk each month, have a lovely time outdoors, and build up your hill skills, looking at areas such as map reading, choosing routes, and safety on the hills. The days will be really supportive and fun, and it really doesn't matter if you are a total beginner! We'll go at a pace to suit the group, and each month will be a little different. Minibus transport is provided from Whitehaven. Walking boot hire available, but please ask in advance. Timings: 09.30am - 3pm Meeting point: Whitehaven Library (or meet us at the start of the walk) You will need: lunch and a drink comfortable clothes suitable for the outdoors warm layers walking boots (or let us know if you need to borrow boots) waterproof jacket, and waterproof trousers if you have any small rucksack (we have some available to borrow) walking poles optional The days are funded by the Outdoor Partnership. Our January walk will take us on a loop in Ennerdale, to the summit of Bowness Knott. In poorer weather we will stay lower down in the valley. The walk will be around 6 - 7km, with around 250m of height gain. Most of the tracks will be wide forest tracks, but the last part up and down from the summit will be single track and a bit more uneven. There will be one steeper section coming down from the summit, but we can take our time and poles will help! This month we will focus on teaching you to use 'tick off' features on your map to help navigate. Sign up in advance. Get in touch with Esther via email or message/phone if you have any questions! 07999366034
