Looe Weekend - Day 1
18 people attending
12 places left
This is the Day 1 Event of a weekend around the Cornish Fishing Village of Looe
Famous as a Fishing Village and priding itself for its Gourmet Restaurants, Looe in Cornwall also has some cracking walks in the area.
This will be a hike of around 11miles starting at Liskeard, then following the West Looe river to the coast at Looe. It's mainly a flat walk through the West Looe River valley although there are a few climbs to get over on the way.
At Looe, will spend the rest of the afternoon exploring this very pretty traditional Cornish fishing village before getting the train back to Liskeard (£4.80 for a single ticket)

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:
- Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
- Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
