I had a spectacular northbound walk on the Offa's Dyke Path between 19 August and 30 August, camping 8 of the 11 nights. It was my first National Trail and I am eager to do more. I'm so thankful to all of the local and national authorities who preserve this heritage and manage the path, as well as the many local individuals along the way who support walkers, from the pub and campground owners to the landowners whose property we walk through. The balance of the physical demands (especially climbing the Hatterall Ridge, Shropshire Hills, and Clwydian Range) with the pastoral landscape was perfect. It was a great challenge and I truly enjoyed every mile.
