Four of our Jamboree Participants have taken on the challenge to do the Parks Trust 25 mile hike. The weather is most definitely not on their side but this will not stop our dedicated young people to achieve their challenge.
Starting in one of our semi-ancient woodlands, Howe Park Wood the 25-mile route guides you through the Tattenhoe Valley, to Furzton Lake and along the Loughton Valley and on to Lodge Lake. You’ll be introduced to the famous concrete cows as you make your way up through the North Loughton Valley and to the edge of Linford Lakes Nature Reserve. Turning south you’ll pass through Linford Manor and join the Grand Union Canal to Willen Lake and onto Campbell Park where you will discover many pieces of artwork and one of the best viewing points in Milton Keynes. The final part of the route follows the River Ouzel, through Ouzel Valley Park concluding at Caldecotte Lake.
Our young people will be attempting to complete this in a day, however, there is the option to complete this over several days.
