What you'll do
This day walk covers 7.2 miles of the Cotswold Way from Selsley to Dursley. This challenging but highly rewarding day out includes some of the most sensational views of the Cotswolds that you can only get on foot. We'll meet in Dursley town centre, catch a bus to Selsley (about 30 minutes), then walk back to Dursley via the Cotswold Way. This section takes in some of the best scenery of the Cotswold Way, including Coaley Peak, Uley Bury, and Cam Long Down. Length: about 7.2 miles with 235 metres of ascent and 290 metres of descent.
I'm a Chicago native who's been living in the Cotswolds for over 10 years and have been a walking enthusiast for pretty much all my life. My walking style is not so much about the mileage as is about the journey and all the wonderful things that happen along the way: hidden histories, ancient relics, untouched villages, cosy pub stops, and the natural world. I also love food so quality snacks and packed lunches are always part of the adventure! I've explored the Cotswolds extensively, including walking the 100 mile Cotswolds Way, and spend most weekends out on some kind of jaunt. I'm also an avid fan of the mountains and am consolidating my training to achieve my Summer Mountain Leader Award. My favourite thing is taking other people out into nature and giving them the means and confidence to have an adventure of their own.
I always bring a selection of healthy homemade snacks to fuel the journey.
