FIELD NOTES FROM THE ANNUAL GENERAL HIKE
FIELD NOTES FROM THE ANNUAL GENERAL HIKE
From Cornwall to the Cairngorms, a new generation of outdoorspeople united at the inaugural Annual General Hike by The Hike Society.

More than 500 hikers assembled outside over the weekend of 15th – 16th October as outdoor communities, who are driving outdoor culture, descended on mountains, valleys and coastlines across the UK.

As reliable as ever, the Great British weather dealt out conditions for all seasons, with reports of sunshine on the Cornish coasts, hailstorms in the Lake District and driving rain in Snowdonia – but whatever the weather – it failed to dampen the spirits of those out on the trail.

The Annual General Hike brought together people from every corner of the country, along with a good helping of furry friends, who found common ground in their love for hiking and spending time outdoors.

The action from the event was documented across social media – follow #thehikesociety to relive the weekend.

FROM THE FIELD

CHEDDAR GORGE – HOSTED BY ADVANCED ROCK

#
#
Advanced Rock hosted a hike through Cheddar Gorge – a natural wonder located in the Mendip Hills.

A place of Special Scientific Interest in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the group embarked on a 10km+ hike that winded up through the impressive gorge. The community even braved the cold for a wild swim enroute.

PEN Y GHENT – HOSTED BY COMMON GROUND

#
#
An impressive 75 hikers turned out for the classic Yorkshire hike – an ascent of one of the Three Peaks – Pen-y-Ghent.

With many making a weekend of it and camping, the Common Ground was a mini-outdoor festival in itself with drinks and good chat around the campfire.
The group managed to capture a group photo on the summit. Amazing job team.

MUSLIM HIKERS

#
#
Born out of the pandemic, Muslim Hikers are an outdoor community founded by outdoorsman Haroon Mota with the focus on diversifying the outdoor world and unlocking the outdoors for Muslims.

For the Annual General Hike, the group hiked Dovedale in the Peak District National Park.

The limestone rock that forms parts of Dovedale is the fossilised remains of sea creatures that lived in a shallow sea over the area during the Carboniferous period, approx 350 million years ago.
