Family Hike

By | July 11th, 2015|Scouts|

Kit check done, hi-viz on, maps at the ready the fearless few set off this morning for our 8 mile family hike along Dollis Valley Greenwalk from Frith Grange Campsite to Moat Mount.

Blessed with good weather the hike was the ideal opportunity to practise our orientation and map reading skills ahead of bigger hikes to come. Brushing up on attack points, contour lines, grid co-ordinates, legs & route’s and how they help us reach our final destination made for a fun session.

Along the route we managed to ‘bag’ a few geocaches too as we took in our tranquil surroundings.

A great days hiking, thanks to everyone who took part and supported us to make the day possible.
