The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. No experience of hill walking required to attend - this course is aimed at beginners.. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then this course is an ideal way to learn.
The first part of the course is spent indoors, getting to know the other people on the course and gaining an understanding of basic hill walking planning. The Tutor will outline the plans for the course before you head out into the hills. The end of the day will usually involve a short indoor session to review the day and plan the following days’ outing.
You can expect to be out walking each day for around 4-5 hours and generally on Hill Skills courses this will be on footpaths or trails that are rough underfoot.
Much of the journey during the course will involve learning opportunities and as such, the pace of the day is friendly and will include plenty of breaks.
