HikingMuddyOff trail

Never going back Wore short trousers & nettles got the best of me. Fell into a rabbit hole/mud all over. Lost trail several times despite having all trails pro. & map even without satellite signal. Also watch out for cow dumps! The one good thing at the end was when lost, crossed the stream on foot & was delighted to find it was shallow enough & felt wonderful on muddy feet.

This is a lovely walk but as it had been raining a lot leading up to us going it was extremely muddy and made some parts of the walk difficult the navigate. The reservoir was fantastic see at the waterfall part and the village was stunning and idyllic.

Not a clear marking for footpaths boogy. Some good spots crossing river otherwise that’s the last time on that one for me.
