England’s Coast-to-Coast Walk

Did you think that England was flat? That it rains all the time? Learn otherwise as AHTC members Cat Colby and Dan Rothman take you on a 195-mile hike (or “walk” as the English call it) across the country from the Irish Sea to the North Sea.

The famous Wainright Coast to Coast Walk passes through beautiful mountain peaks and waters in the Lake District; rolling river valleys and farmlands in the Yorkshire Dales; and expansive heather plateaus and scenic woodlands in the North York Moors. Along the route, you’ll see postcard villages, famous historic landmarks, farms with seemingly never-ending stone walls, and stunning landscapes throughout. Not to mention the dramatic coastal cliffs on the west (St. Bees) and east (Robin Hood’s Bay) ends of the journey.

Cat and Dan will describe the hike itself, including preparation and provisions, as well as the logistics regarding travel, lodging and dining.  

Come and join us for a great combination of travel and trekking.
