Womens Hill Skills - Friday June 24th

Monthly walks for women in West Cumbria. Longlands Lake and Dent Fell

  • Started 24 Jun
  • 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, and build up your skills in the outdoors, 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 start with some walks not far from Whitehaven. Minibus transport is provided Walking boot hire available, but please ask in advance. Timings: 09.30am - 3pm Meeting point: Whitehaven Library 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) ideally waterproof jacket, and waterproof trousers if you have any small rucksack (we have some available to borrow) The days are funded by the Outdoor Partnership. Our June walk will start from Longlands Lake, and will be designed to be a more gentle day, suitable for those who would appreciate not climbing too many steep hills! We will explore around Longlands Lake first, and also learn a bit about the environment there and the work being done to look after the area and provide more for the community! We'll then walk up Dent Fell and make a circular walk back to the parking. The walk will mostly be on good paths and tracks, and be around 9km.
