Trail – September 2017


Ahhh, September, September, September. They should write a song about September. The should call it Ahhh, September. Because it really is the finest month to be out in the hills. The ground is still warm from summer, the breeze hasn’t grown its autumn teeth yet, the days are just long enough to be epic and the nights just right for a stargazing. It’s my birthday in September. I’ve decided this year I’ll be 24. Because it’s September, and anything is possible see? So we thought we would offer you all a summermoon – like a honeymoon, but better. A month of mountain adventures to wind down the warmer bit of the year in style and take advantage of this marvellous golden month. So, starting on page 38, we have a fabulous clutch of ready-made adventures for you to go and find, tailored to this sublime time of year. We’ll see you out there…
