Hampstead Heath circular

As none of my fellow organisers has put a walk this Saturday, I'm repeating the Hampstead walk from January as it was rather muddy last time.

This is the most hilly of my walks with dirt tracks (not paved paths). Appropriate footwear is important on this walk to give support to your feet.

The walk is 4.25 miles with a half hour break at The Flask in Highgate (approximately around[masked]pm). There is a toilet break at Kenwood house around 1.45pm. Latecomers can be picked up at Kenwood House or The Flask at Highgate.

Because of some steep inclines especially in Highgate, you will probably burn off more calories and feel more tired than on the flatter incline walks.

The pace will still be relaxed and set according to the slowest walker in the group. But please make sure you can cope with the inclines. If you have asthma or leg injuries please think carefully about whether you can do this walk. Mobile phone reception isn't the best in the heath to call for help and once in the heath, it's not easy to find your way out in an emergency (there's a lack of signage).

Meet outside Hampstead tube at 1pm. We start promptly, so do plan your journey! Please click here for the Transport for London Journey planner http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/user/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2?language=en

 

PS: The walk will be cancelled/rescheduled if there are less than 10 people signed up.

    I would love to come. I have a bad back but exercise is good for it but I may need to stop and rest on and off and dont want to delay other people. Would it still be ok for me to join the walk?

      Hi Lynn, you'll have to assess how you do. There are some drop off points - kenwood house and The Flask at Highgate if your back troubles you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
