Back out in the hills for the first time in a long while and I had the pleasure of four other amputees for company! Two old friends, two new friends and myself gathered for a walk in the countryside to help with their training for a stroll up Mount Snowdon organised by Limbpower – everyone’s favourite amputee sporting charity!
We set off from the top of Box Hill and immediately dropped down the steepest track to the river Mole where first a footbridge then a more exciting set of stepping stones allowed us to cross over and return.

A second circuit to the north-east of the visitors centre meant that our total distance was around 8km with height gained and lost of 310 m (over 1000 ft!).
GPS tracking data showed the routes of our two circuits and the elevation profiles – pretty impressive for a gentle training walk!
