BURTON DASSETT HILLS & MOLLINGTON LOOP | 14 MILES | MODERATE TO CHALLENGING
April 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm BST
ABOUT THE WALK
This is a moderate to challenging walk and a perfect training hike for those completing an AG challenge during 2022. The walk starts at the main car park in the heart of Buron Dassett Hills County Park and then we head out of the park on a steep decline. This is such a good training hike as we have a real mix of terrain. From steep inclines and declines, a 2 mile stretch along the canal and also a longish stretch (about a mile) along a bridle path which is tarmac / road. We do have several stiles to clamber over and there are some tight kissing gates (good practice for those carrying large rucksacks!) – unfortunately, this means that it is not really a suitable walk for bigger dogs.
The last time we walked this trail was in September 2020 (see video below).
We will stop a few times on route, plus a break for lunch – so please bring along a packed lunch. We also stop at a fabulous pub for a coffee and cake which is approximately 2 miles before the end.
Note, please arrive by 8.45 am we will set off at 9 am sharp.
MEETING PLACE: We will meet in the main car park. Head for the highest point car park (look for the round watch out building perched on top of one of the hills with fencing around it) There is a parking meter – contactless £2.50 for the day.
