    Looking forward to 2014 schedule.

    Has anyone ever walked on the ridges located near the south gap of town? I know YMCA has an event that goes up the road to the twin towers. I am wondering if the opposite site of the gap has a foot trail across the east ridges?

    • Yes, Cynthia, the club regularly walks on the east side (as well as the west side) ridge of Heavitree Gap. On the east side, generally we walk from Emily Gap along the open ridge top to Mt John and then down to an old vehicle track into the back of the Heavitree Tavern on the south side of the gap. There is no foot track on the ridge, but it is open and fairly easy off track walking.

    Great! When will you next walk on the east side be? I know of one person, possibly up to three who would like to join on the walk.
