Details of the walk:

A circular walk through Breakheart Quarry and Hermitage Wood to find several geocaches. This is an ideal introduction to Geocaching for all ages. Experienced geocachers will be very welcome to help out. Walk will be on established paths, but short sections may be slightly muddy. No steep inclines, but there are 3 stiles. We will be searching for geocaches, with a short stop at each one. Some geocaches have swaps inside, so bring some small trinkets along to exchange.
