Wild Walks (mostly mountainous)

Wales top to toe, the last leg  Probably June 2020 Leader: Philip Sayers
In May or June we plan to complete our top-to-toe walk through central Wales with the final section from Abergavenny to Rhoose Point (the southernmost tip of mainland Wales), walking about 16 hilly miles per day. Four nights away, cheaper (advance) train tickets, baggage carried by car between overnight stops.
If the walk interests you please contact Phil Sayers on p.sayers@gmail.com (preferred) or 01462 686798 for further details. No commitment needed until February.
 
Is there a long distance trail, remote area or mountainous region where you want to walk with other like-minded walkers? If so, then please get in touch.

2018

Geoff Smith writes: In November five of us stayed in Coetmor Mill for four nights from a Monday to Friday.
With powerful central heating throughout, a beautifully equipped kitchen, perfect hot showers and a cosy ‘snug’ for the evenings it deserved the title of luxury bunkhouse.

THE CAPE WRATH TRAIL

Five members of the Wild Walks Group have successfully completed the 230-mile Cape Wrath Trail through the Scottish Highlands – nearly!

2015 Expeditions

April - the final section of the Cambrian Way trail, Barmouth to Conwy, was completed. The walk, which starts in Cardiff, is highly recommended for its combination of historical and cultural features, natural history, geography and excellent walking. Detailed maps, GPX tracks, points of interest, daily schedules, transport links etc. are available via the group contact.
