When you are planning a route, why not use the bus to get you back? You can cover far more ground if you don’t have to walk back to the start. Beacons Bus is specially designed with walkers in mind but the local services are also very helpful. Get a copy of the free National Park Travel Guide from Information Centres or by sending your name and address by email. If you do use your car, do be sure not to leave any valuables within it if parking in the countryside. Vehicle crime is a sadly ever present problem.
You must be properly equipped especially if the walk takes you up into the mountains or on to exposed open moorland. Take care, tell someone where you are going and don’t be afraid to turn round if the weather turns wet or misty.
- Plan your route carefully, taking a proper walkers map with you
- Check the weather forecast before your start
- Take the right equipment including good footwear, warm clothes and waterproofs
- Bring plenty of food and drink as well as sunblock
- Remember mobile phone coverage is patchy and cannot be relied upon
- Visit one of the National Park Information Centres for detailed information
- Go on a training course to brush up your safety and navigation skills
