ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
Starting from the main car park we will head towards the lake. You may be wondering why we have called this the “whale walk” – when you look at the map, it is shaped like a whale, that is the only reason. As far as I am aware there are no whales in the lake…. but you never know!
This is a nice easy walk and the terrain is mainly paved. We will walk along the lake, up to the rafting centre and then make our way back to the main car park in a full loop, stopping for sweets along the way.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- A good torch (no head torches please as they tend to blind people!)
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Please make sure you have a reflective jacket /vest/armband (essential on all winter hikes). If you don't have one, then we have plenty of spares that you can borrow for the evening.
- A drink and snacks.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. Just bring yourself and then tell the organisers your name when you arrive. We will then check you in.
