Message from the organising committee:


Welcome to the 2016 Cheshire Hike, please take note of the dates for your diary below.


It has been decided to run the hike this year on maps of a scale of 1:25000 instead of the old 1:50000 scale. It is important to practice with maps of this scale.


The organising committee is aware of the current exceptional weather, and are confident that the four months remaining to the hike is adequate for the paths to dry out sufficiently for the hike to proceed. Of course we are montoring the state of the routes on an ongoing basis.


We have now created a forum for you to place your views and questions about the hike, please use the link in the menu at the top of the page to access this.
