The Ancestor’s Trail is an annual event, based on Richard Dawkins’ book ‘The Ancestor’s Tale’.
This year’s Ancestor’s Trail will take place on Saturday 29th August in Epping Forest and the Lee Valley Country Park.
The trails are of varying length (from 3 to 12 miles), ranging from longer, more challenging hikes to shorter, easier wheelchair-friendly flat-terrain walks. Walkers will be met at specified times at each starting location and guided by marshals back to the origins of life.
Most trails begin from train or tube stations and all end near Cheshunt railway station with easy connection to central London.
The Trail finishes at Cheshunt at around 5 p.m. where tea and cake will be available in a private room at the Maltsters pub. Drinks will be available throughout the evening. The pub does not provide food, but they are happy for us to bring our own or order from nearby takeaways.
There will be a flat fee of just £3 per person (no charge for children).
We look forward to seeing you there!
