Wild camping on Exmoor on The Two Moors Way, August 2023
My Plans For 2023
Long Distance Trails
I have a bucket list as long as my arm, and this year I picked a couple of long distance trails and a few national trails to complete, alongside anything else I can squeeze in.
I want to explore more of Dartmoor and there are a couple of 100-mile or so trails that will be great for that:
Then, there’s my goal to hike all of our national long-distance trails before I’m 60 – the time frame’s looking pretty dubious if I’m honest (because 60’s hurtling towards me at an alarming rate), but that’s the timeframe not the goal! Also, as far as the national trails are concerned, I like the idea of hiking the remaining two trails in Wales this summer. There are 3 altogether:
- The Pembrokeshrie Coast Path
- Glyndwrs Way
- and Offa’s Dyke Path that I hiked in 2021
Finally, time and funds permitting, there are only a couple of other trails to complete in the south of England: The North Downs Way and The Thames Path.
