TRAINING WALK – WOBURN DEER & SAFARI PARK LOOP
July 31 @ 9:45 am - 4:30 pm BST
Note, please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp.
This is the sixth walk in a series of training hikes originally organised for those attending an Adventure Walk during 2021. (Snowdon, The West Highland Way, Hadrian's Wall and any of the Camino's).
We have limited places for this particular trail, so please only book if you are 100% sure you can attend.
The walk: This is one of my favourite walks as we get up close and personal with the huge variety of deer throughout the deer park, as well walking right next to the elephants, wallabies, wilder beast and camels at Woburn Safari Park. We will stop for lunch in a lovely forest trail, and there are a few pubs on route, so we can always enjoy a quick drink and rest our feet in the pub gardens.
MEETING PLACE: Meet in the car park at 9.45am, ready to leave at 10am.
WALK LEADER: Julia Doherty
