Covid-19 - getting back outdoors
All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.
Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.
At a length of approx. 14 miles, this walk is guaranteed to help you shed some of that Christmas turkey!
Starting from Mytholmroyd with an ascent to Broadhead Clough Nature reserve, we then follow Dick's Lane to reach the Stoodley Pike Monument.
After this, we will make our way to a couple of cairns called The Two Lads where we will stop for lunch.
From there, we'll follow a section of road, then peel off to explore the gorgeous woodlands surrounding Cragg Vale before arriving back into Mytholmroyd.
There are some gorgeous natural and man-made features to see along the way, and a nice variety of terrains to traverse.
Because of the shorter days, we'll be keeping to a fairly brisk pace, but I'd recommend bringing a headtorch along just in case. Gaiters are also recommended.
Food & Drink: please bring a packed lunch and something to drink. After the walk we hope to take refreshment at a local pub or cafe.
Equipment: walking boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, warm clothing. Trekking pole(s) recommended if normally used.
