Charnwood Peaks Walk

26 km / 16 miles

Leicestershire
This walk takes you to the four peaks that define Charnwood Forest, part of the National Forest and northwest of Leicester. Along the way you will pass the oldest rocks in Britain, visit historic deer parks and take in some spectacular views. Charnwood Forest is famed for its craggy hills and dry stone walls, but is also rich in wildlife. Look out for buzzards circling on the updrafts from the hills. Information is downloadable below or from the listed website.
