Here’s a little video we made while hiking the downs and forest above Brighstone, here on the island. It’s one of our favourite spots and it’s a go to for slacklining, trail running and even wildcamping.
Surely starting next to a named body of salt water and finishing next another named something different counts as a Coast to Coast Hike? Like the North Sea to the Irish Sea. Or in this case, the Solent to the English Channel.
Dad! Shift your butt over!!!
We made a little video of our recent hike down one riverbank and back up the other. It’s over on our new YouTube channel so head over and give us a subscribe,
Many of our National Parks have long distance trails associated with them. The Two Moors Way in Devon passes through both Dartmoor and Exmoor, Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and the South Downs all have their eponymous ways while the New Forest has little more of a stretch of the Solent Way skirting around her borders. We hope to change that.
Here’s Isa looking rather cool in his almost trademark yellow shirt while bouldering on Down Tor, Dartmoor.
Sometimes we have to share a route. Its not fun and we don’t like it. But eventually it gets us to where we want to go.
