This year’s Jack Frost Hike took place a week later than previous years, allowing people a little more time to recover from their Christmas and New Year extravagances!
We met up at Grove Road at 9am and after a short wait for the usual latecomer (you know who you are!), we set off for Grassington
After reaching Yarnbury, there was an unscheduled toilet break for the ladies of our group, having decided that it would be best to return to Grassington to use the public toilets than to use nature’s toilets!
Our route took us from Grassington to Yarnbury and on through the old Lead Mines which are still clearly visible on the landscape
We stopped for a brief rest at this site before heading off again, continuing on our way towards Hebden village where we would stop for lunch. On the way there was some fun to be had on a nicely frozen path!
Following our lunch stop we headed along the path by the stream towards Burnsall, stopping once again for a short rest by the tea rooms The Scouts all took this opportunity to visit the shop for some well earned sweets. Unfortunately the adults among us were not able to call at the pub!
Heading off through the village we returned to the path alongside the stream and back towards Linton Falls and continued back to Grassington
It turned out to be a long day, the hike taking much longer than it should have, but it was a very pleasant walk and a welcome opportunity to get to know other parents a little better
