While the trail can be hiked in either direction, we are taking the more traditional route starting in St. Bees and hiking east to Robin Hood's Bay.  We will be hiking with backpacks and gear, but have chosen to stay in hostels and B & B's rather than campsites in order to cut down on the weight of the gear we need to carry.
