This is the fifth walk in a series of training hikes organised for those attending an Adventure Walk during 2021. (Snowdon, The West Highland Way, Hadrian's Wall and any of the Camino's). This is part of a multi-day hike. If you are walking the Camino, WHW or Hadrian's Wall, then walking two days on the trot is excellent training for your upcoming event – so please try and book on both days.

We have limited places for this particular trail, so please only book if you are 100% sure you can attend.

The walk: This walk in the Malvern Hills area of outstanding natural beauty offers sweeping views of the surrounding areas and is well marked. This trail covers Worcestershire Beacon – the highest point of the Malvern Hills. The Worcestershire Beacon has historically been used as a location for signalling beacons. In 1588 it formed part of a chain of warning fires which were lit when the Spanish Armada attempted to invade England. On the summit is a viewfinder identifying the hills to be seen on a clear day.

This is a good walk with some quite strenuous inclines. The outward hike is generally over the top of four peaks then the return is around the edge through wooded areas. Breathtaking, stunning views.

If you are an Adventure Geek Walking Club Member (monthly or annual) then these training walks are included in your membership. Please message me for your discount code.

MEETING PLACE:  Meet in the car park at 9.45am, ready to leave at 10am.
