'The last ten or so years have passed uncomfortably quickly, it seems like only yesterday that I walked my first trail in the summer of 2004; the North Downs Way. Since then, trailwalking has become something of an addiction, an addiction made stronger by the very limited times I get off work ...'

'Take a WildWalk around your local landscape and enjoy the wonders of nature, while helping it at the same time. Note the species and habitats you see and join The Wildlife Trusts in monitoring local wildlife as part of our Living Landscapes initiative. Championed by The Wildlife Trusts, Living Landscapes is a new way of thinking big about how we manage the land for wildlife, people and the economy. By working on a landscape-scale with partners, landowners and local communities, we are bringing isolated pockets of nature together to form a network and help wildlife to recover and thrive across the UK.'

'The National Three Peaks Challenge is a well known phrase amongst the more adventurous. This challenge involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours ... The three peaks are:  Ben Nevis (1,344 m or 4,409 ft), the highest mountain in Scotland;  Scafell Pike (978 m or 3,209 ft), the highest mountain in England;  Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa (1,085 m or 3,560 ft), the highest mountain in Wales ... Organised versions of the National Three Peaks Challenge are available, while many groups organise their own.'
However, we must note that the Challenge is 'putting increasing pressure on the same localities throughout the summer months, with considerable negative impact on the environment, local residents, rescue services and amenities. The National Parks/Local Authorities and landowners are responding to the impact of this event by discouraging further growth and beginning to operate a stronger management regime for it'.
