walk notes

Interested in taking place on this year’s Cragside Challenge Walk but want to know more and do some ‘practice walks’?

If so this guided walk has been created for you.

This year we are doing the Cragside Challenge walk in the opposite direction and this guided walk will not only help towards your training but will also give you a really good overview about the actual Challenge walk day itself.

Chris (the guide for the day) will guide you from Rothbury up along the challenge walk route up onto Simonside and through the forest down to Tosson Lime Kiln. Throughout the day you will walk through the location of both of the actual checkpoints used on the Cragside Challenge Walk this year.

You will then be guided back alongside the River Coquet back into Rothbury.

During the day Chris will go over an overview of the challenge walk day itself and do some basic navigational skills and map reading.

To compliment this he will go over some safety techniques and also give you some ‘top tips’ for the challenge walk itself.

It will be a fun an informative day and as Chris guides our ‘guided’ option of the Cragside Challenge Walk he can pass on some great in depth knowledge and some ‘top tips’ for the actual day itself.
