The walk is mainly on forestry tracks and paths although we do leave the paths to look at different plants. The ground can be wet, muddy and boggy with some steep, uneven sections through the woodland. A reasonable level of fitness is required for a half day on foot. Suitable for age 10+ with an accompanying adult. Well-behaved dogs by arrangement only, please.

Heathery Heights is very much a company grown from the love of nature and the outdoors. Caring for the environment, our planet, and nurturing that care in others is intrinsic to the company's ethos. We enjoy the peace, beauty and tranquillity of what we find in nature, we immerse our senses and find inner balance. The incredible power of spending time in the outdoors to improve health and well-being is immeasurable, add to this the benefits of learning to cherish and safeguard the natural world around us and you have your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. And safety is key too; being a member of the Mountain Rescue in Scotland and then latterly in the Yorkshire Dales certainly instils respect for our outdoor environment.
