Quote from: vandermolen on July 22, 2020, 01:17:46 PMIn these difficult times we have been encouraged to get out of doors and walk for exercise. Where do you like walking? My favourite walk is a ten mile walk from Gunnerside, a village in N.Yorkshire in the North of England where I have spent numerous holidays from age 19. The Yorkshire Dales is my favourite location in England, especially due to the great contrast between the bleak and rugged scenery at the top,of the dales and the pastoral landscapes in the valley bottoms. There are quite a few abandoned lead mines in the area, so the walk is full of history as well:[/img]

Quote from: Mirror Image on July 24, 2020, 08:03:35 AMI usually walk around the neighborhood, but there used to be a nice nature trail near our house, but it hasn't been used in years. I used to walk on this trail a good bit. I also used to walk a good bit around the shore of Lake Lanier, which is also nearby:
Quote from: Brian on July 24, 2020, 12:22:08 PMAmazing idea for a thread!One of my favourite walks ever was to start in Lewes, Sussex, head out to Glyndebourne via country hills and fields, and then dip south to the South Downs Way and get a view of the Channel. Another was through the woods around Wendover and Chequers, although the main appeal there, a pub in Wendover with excellent hamburgers, is long since closed. Living in London, I would while away an afternoon just walking 4-5 miles around town, seeing whatever there was to see.Here in Dallas, we're not well set up for walks: too hot from June through September, and too many wide streets. But out west, I loved a 10-mile loop hike around Pinnacles National Park (including across the top of the namesake mountains), a walk to the Continental Divide in Colorado which took us to the source of the Colorado River (the same one that goes through the Grand Canyon), and the Hoh River Rain Forest trail in Washington.Actually, since Herman mentions it, one of my favourite cities to go walking in is, well, Leiden. Antwerp's not bad, either, or Delft. We got lost in Haarlem, though.

Quote from: vandermolen on July 24, 2020, 04:19:56 PMThanks! Thought it might make a change from Coronavirus etc. Lewes is very local and we drove past Glyndebourne today. There's a great circular walk from Glynde up to Mount Caburn and ending up on the golf course above Lewes.
Quote from: Brian on July 24, 2020, 05:40:37 PMMount Caburn was part of my walk and when I was there, people were parasailing off the top onto the land below. A cool sight.
