walk notes

Change of walk due to closure of Bull Crag shortcut.

As some of the Nordic walkers have decided to complete some of the Shepherds Walks Challenge Walks we have incorporated sections of the walks into our programme.

This walk will take in 9 miles of the Kielder Challenge.

We will meet at Leaplish Waterside Park and head towards Bull Crag Peninsular passing Freya's Hut on the way.  From here we will round the peninsular taking in panoramas of the Kielder Resevoir before following the Lakeside Way up the inlet to cross it at what would be Checkpoint 4 on the Challenge.

From this point we will continue to follow the Lakeside Way via Whickhope to Tower Knowe Visitor Centre where we can stop for a well earned cup of tea before completing the walk to the start of the dam wall. 

This is an excellent opportunity to experience part of the Kielder Challenge which takes place in September.
