At Maggie's Bridge Car Park (NY134211)
Beer Trail 2019:
Opens Saturday 21st December, closes end of January 2020. Usual format – go to the first checkpoint (see below) where you’ll find a stake with the next grid reference. Carry on until you get to the beer & chocolate. There's a visitor book in the cache to sign and comment when you have found it.
Leave plenty of daylight and carry a decent torch. Both courses go into the Loweswater Fells so go equipped for a mountain journey.
WE DON’T KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE - YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY
This year’s Beer Trail uses some features which only appear on the orienteering map prepared by Pete Nelson. The grid references will work on a OS/Harveys map, but some of the features are not on the map (they’re obviously there on the ground though!). Please download the O map from the website and print, or pick up a copy (printed on waterproof orienteering paper) from the Rennies at any of the festive events, or from their house on Kirkgate. (Paper copies will be available from Monday). There’s also a special present under the Christmas tree half way round the course.
Long Course (15km) control 1: Tarn Outflow NY 124 199
Short Course (10km) control 1: Wall NY 113 209
Please leave the stash as you find it and take away litter. If the goodies are running low, let us know.
Note: please don’t give the game away by putting the whole of your route on Strava or similar. The location of the cache is a secret until you’ve put the effort in.
