Mac Shutlingsloe Circular Walk
Picture: View full size
Everyone welcome including non-members. This is an excellent walk for a short winters day and the views along this route can be spectacular. The walk starts near the Leather’s Smithy pub (SJ 953 716) about a mile east of Langley. Follow signs to Macc Forest.
Time: 9:45 for 10am start. I shall be there at 9am.
Parking: Near the Leather’s Smithy pup in marked parking bays alongside Ridgegate Reservoir. Note it is probably best to arrive early, as this is a popular starting point. Car sharing recommended.
Route: Start is at the Leather’s Smithy, passing Hanging Gate Inn, Crag Inn, Shutlingsloe and returning to the start through the trees of Macc Forest.
Difficulty: Easy to moderate. 7 miles. Paths good. Mud minimal but there will be some.
Should the conditions be absolutely foul on Sunday, I’ll then consider changing this meet to Saturday. Please check the KMC website nearer the time for the latest information.
