Join Mike from Mind Over Mountains to find out how to plan a good walk, what resources are useful to plan your walk and what else might you need to consider before heading out on the hills for the day.
What essential or useful things is it advisable to pack and what do you do if it all goes wrong? With all of us looking for new ways to explore our local area, Mike will be full of route planning tips to help you take less well walked routes.
Mind Over Mountains are a mental health charity offering immediate and accessible support through therapeutic outdoor experiences.
We deliver events throughout the UK, with bursaries available to those with the most challenging lives. Ranging from one day to 2-night stays, our programmes bring together professionally guided hill-walking, mindfulness and time in the company of experienced coaches and counsellors.
