We’ve got a choice of two great routes; 3 miles of 7.5 miles. The 3 mile route is flat, with one short incline, we recommend this route for families. The 7.5 mile route does include a few hills, with an incline up to the top of Bluebell Hill. With regret, due to the nature of the terrain, both our routes are unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
Yes please! We welcome all well-behaved dogs at Heli Hike. We just ask for you to keep your dog on a lead throughout.
Come along and join us from 9am, our warm-up will begin at 9.45 ready for you to head off on Heli Hike at 10am!
You can pop in and see us at our Rochester office (located at Rochester City Airport – ME5 9SD). Alternatively, you can collect your t-shirt on the day.
