Sil­ver Lincs Way, Lincolnshire

Trail Running (UK) - - Routes - Sam Jack­son, Trail Run­ning reader

This en­joy­able way­marked route be­tween Grimsby and Louth is a per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to the Lincolnshire Wolds, us­ing trails, foot­paths and short stretches of quiet lane to link up the two towns. De­signed as a walk, it was es­tab­lished in 2005 to mark the Sil­ver Ju­bilee of the Grimsby & Louth Group of the Ram­blers – but it works bril­liantly as a run­ning route too. The route takes in wood­land trails, pretty vil­lages and some won­der­ful sec­tions through the rolling Wolds where vast skies arch over­head. The fi­nal miles that fol­low the River Lud through Hub­bard’s Hills be­fore ar­riv­ing in Louth are a stun­ning way to fin­ish. Please note that the sec­tion af­ter care­fully cross­ing the busy A157 fol­lows a per­mis­sive path, which is avail­able for use thanks to the kind con­sent of the landown­ers.
