Coast to Coast

A 17 - 20 day walk, broken at with overnights at quaint English villages, and a couple of bigger towns. Average day is 20ks, and starts in St Bees on the West Coast and finishes in Robin Hoods Bay in the East, cover three national parks. Some days are very long and challenging, some quiet easy. Beautiful scenery. Some navigational skills are helpful, but there are some good guide books available. The trail is not well marked, but quite popular in summer months, recommend a good level of fitness and some back to back long hike training.

Traditionally starts in St Bees and finishes in Robin Hoods Bay. But can be done in reverse. There are several other variations/extension as well. Can be done in as little as 12 days, but would recommend more like 17, allowing a couple of rest days.
