Cicerone Three Peaks, Ten Tors
Cicerone - Three Peaks, Ten Tors
A look both serious and humorous at what it takes to do a long-distance or challenge walk – the mental toughness, experience, the slight madness – plus notes on planning and undertaking the best such routes.
Ronald Turnbull, veteran of many a long-distance and challenge walk, intersperses sound advice with wry recollections of his experience of the 3 Peaks Challenge and other such routes throughout the British Isles.
Suitable for aspiring or novice long-distance walkers, the guidebook provides tips on how to minimise the suffering, to stay safe, to raise money for charity perhaps, and to find a surprising amount of enjoyment along the way. Old hands will enjoy comparing their experiences with the author’s reminiscences of the highs and lows of long-distance routes.
