WESTCOTT WORKOUT HIKE 14 Miles & 550M total ascent

WESTCOTT WORKOUT HIKE  14 mile 550m total ascent

June 8th 10:15 AM -DORKING STATION,

Just when I thought I was running out of hilly trails I found a beauty.  We have a lazy Sunday start and head for familiar and favourite hilly paths near Ranmore Common. After a sunny picnic lunch near a waterfall we head for new trails scattered with Hans & Gretal style houses,  fast flowing streams and of course a steep hill.  You will get your heart pumping while soaking up the serenity of the National Trust lands. This is a hike for regulars and experienced hikers only. If you don’t like hills or to sweat you won’t like this hike J. If you like burning calories you will love it.

COST £9.50 for hike guided by a WGL trained leader and senior personal trainer with an outdoor first aid qualification. Excludes train fare and lunch

TRAINS: (purchase returns. Form group savers to minimise cost)Depart  Victoria 10:10 – Arrive Dorking 11:09
Return trains from Dorking 17:07, 17:15, 17:45 & 18:07

Off peak return is £8.70 or will be 1/3 off if you form a group of three to purchase a group saver ticket and travel together
DRIVERS
Pay & display parking available at Dorking Station. However, there is often a car boot sale operating from the car park so you may need to find free parking in the nearby roads.

What to bring:

·  WATERPROOF JACKET- essential

·  Waterproof walking shoes- boots with ankle support are recommended to cope with slippery trails. Please avoid trainers.

·  Base layer

·  Trousers or shorts (be aware there are many stinging needles this time of year)

    Alex, yesterday was absolutely fantastic! Dare I say -my favourite route ever! Please repeat again soon. It felt like we were really back to grass roots/routes. Friday street hamlet was out of this world. And the hill was like "Murder on Friday street"

    Big thanks to all who hiked for a terrific day - lakes, snakes, sunshine and a wicked hill. BTW I estimated the average person burnt about 1600- 2000 calories depending on your size and fitness level. That means you earned a lot of indulging in wine and food.

    Hi Alex, just wondering why you advise buying a single not a return to Dorking does that only apply to group savers? Also is it the Dorking [main] station on National rail enquires it also lists Dorking West & Dorking Deepdene.

    June 7

    • Alexandria M.

      Sorry all it should not say single. It should be return to Dorking Main.

    I have a spot on the Marlow hike on the 31st May but would really prefer to be on this Westcott hike as I'm off to hike up Mount Musala the following weekend and i could really do with one of Alex's legendary workouts before i go! So if anyone would like to swap with me please let me know. Thank you!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
