Good hiking boots may be ideal for 'slippery' walk
Bookmark and Share
Good walking boots with plenty of grip may be the most important piece of equipment for an organised walk in the Peak District next month.

The Caves, Stone and Soup trek takes place on Saturday 19th February, lasting from 10:00 GMT to 16:00 GMT although it covers less than five miles in distance.

"Occasionally wet and slippery underfoot" conditions are a major reason for this, with the event beginning in Birchover village and encountering "a world of druids, hidden castles, hermits' caves and mysterious stones".

The national park authority advises stout footwear and waterproofs are among the essentials, as well as £5.50 for the warm soup that will be provided on this family-orientated trek.

It is one of many upcoming walks being organised by the national park, with others including a challenging walk on Kinder Scout.

The hike will take in the northern edges of the high plateau on January 30th, with winter jackets likely to come in handy on the cold, flat upland, which is 2,000 ft above sea level and exposed to the wind.
